This church, dedicated to Saint Paul the Apostle was built in the 17th century but was destroyed by a huge fire in 1835 and what remains till today is the facade of the church. It is one of Macau’s best known landmarks and has been officially listed as part of the Historic Centre of Macau, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

2. Travessa da Paixao

We walked down the steps below Ruins of St. Paul to the back alleys of Ruins of St Paul about 50 meters and found this interesting narrow street. The both sides feature European style building, brightly painted in traditional Portuguese colours.

5. Rua da Felicidade

Also known as the “Happiness Street”, this is located between Largo de Santo Agostinho and Largo do Senado. Back in the old days, it was the heart of Macau’s red lights district. This place was also part of the set in movies such as “Indiana Jones” and the “Temple of the Doom”.

6. Guia Fortress

The Guia Fortress was initially designed to defend Macau from attacks from the sea, but because of its position overlooking the entire city, its value was then recognized as an observation post. It was a restricted military area until 1076 when it opened up to tourists.

This was taken on our way up to Guia Fortress. OT0A3321.jpg

 It is centrally located in the outer harbour. Other than being a theme park, it offers dining, shopping, entertainment, accomodation, convention and exhibition facilities in one single location. Just take a 5 minutes walk from the Macau-HK Ferry Terminal and Heliport and you’ll be able to find this place.


8. Chapel of Our Lady of Penha

This chapel was founded in 1622 by the crew and passengers of a ship which had narrowly escaped being captured by the Dutch. It served as a point of pilgrimage for sailors embarking on a hazardous voyage.
