The Ruins of St. Paul’s
A famous UNESCO World Heritage site. The Ruins of St. Paul’s church was once a thriving religious complex in the Portuguese reign. Today only the facade of the church remains erect. This beautiful building was destroyed twice in history. First, it was decimated by a fire in the 1600s and reconstructed after that. Then it was levelled by a Typhoon in 1835, only the facade remained.
The ancient temple was constructed in the fourteenth century and is dedicated to the Chinese Sea Goddess Matsu. The temple complex is divided into six parts. It is believed that Macau was named after the temple as the Portuguese arrived at the place; they first visited the temple only. The rich history of Macau is still alive inside the ancient temple.
