Ruins of St. Paul’s – Macau

0731 Ruins of St. Paul's - Macau

Due to its close to 500 years of colonial history Macau represents a peculiar blend of Oriental and Western influences. Even today, long after the Portuguese have gone, the city has a unique and hybrid urban culture, where a European visitor could almost feel her/himself at home.
The Church of St. Paul was a 17th-century Portuguese church dedicated to Saint Paul the Apostle, that was destroyed by a fire during a typhoon in January 1835. Today, the ruins are one of Macau’s best known landmarks and since 2005 a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
