Ruins of St. Paul Tips (31)

Ruins of St. Paul

The great facade and staircase to St. Paul's church is the most famous landmark of Macau. Designed by an Italian Jesuit and with the help of Japanese Christian artisans, the church was built from 1602 to 1637. Two hundred years later, in 1835, a fire burned it to the ground, leaving only the facade, the staircase and some walls. These relicts were restored in 1991.

Everyone sees the St. Pauls...

Everyone sees the St. Pauls Cathedral Ruins and Museum of Macau right next door. Its touristy but it introduces you to the EuroAsian experience.
All that remains of the greatest of Macau’s chruches is its magnificent stone facade and grand staircase. The church was built in 1602 adjoining the Jesuit College of St. Paul’s, the first Western college in the Far East where missionarie such as Matteo Ricci and dam Schall studied Chinese before serving at the Ming Court in Peking as astronomers and mathematicians.
