The ruins of the Saint Paul Church is one of the most visited tourist spots in Macau these days. I’ve been there once, and as you can see in the photo a lot of people coming in and out from the ruined complex. This Church was built from 1602 to 1640, and considered one of the largest Catholic churches in Asia at the time. The southern stone facade was intricately carved by Japanese Christians in exile from their homeland.
