[See] Macau – Walking around 大巴三牌坊/ Ruin of St. Paul’s

After having the famous egg tart, off to the Ruin of the st Paul, which is just a walking distance from the cafe. Love the authentic building there but i somehow hope that the people around me have some manners. XD

Before i got to  Ruin of St Paul’s , chance upon this building that was open for visitors, went in as i couldn’t stand the heat outside and tiredness of walking in my new shoe. Nice architecture and building ~!~! got to know that they have free WI-Fi in Macau for tourist, tried that but the connection sucks, so i gave up.

Next i went over to the Fortress Armorial Gate which was just beside the Ruin, so another climbing of steps here on top you can view the whole of Macau which was an added stop that i just feel like going.

Overall:

Ruin of the st Paul was really a place that could really make you feel the history behind it, read their history and even went down into their Cripta Crypt ( a place where they kept the remains of the Martyrs of Japan and Vietnam) even though i am not a Catholic, i still feel that is a need to understand a different religious.

I am quite happy with my last-minute decision because i get to see the different view up there. As i didn’t add in Macau tower in my itinerary i think this will do. If you want to get some souvenir is just in front of the ruin of st paul.
