Ruins of St. Paul’s, Macau Peninsula, Macau

After visiting St. Dominic’s Church at the Historic Centre of Macau in Macau Peninsula during our Macau Day Tour, we went to the St. Paul’s Ruins or the Ruins of St. Paul’s.

St. Paul’s Ruins refer to the facade of the original St. Paul’s Cathedral which was built in 1602 adjoining the College of St. Paul of the Jesuits.

The stone of the facade of the St. Paul’s Cathedral was carved in between 1620 and 1627 by the Japanese Christians in exile and local craftsmen under the direction of an Italian Jesuit named Carlo Spinola.

The Ruins of St. Paul’s is part of the “Historic Centre of Macau”. The Historic Centre of Macau was officially inscribed on July 15, 2005 on the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage Site.
