If you ve been living in Asia for long, it is nice and surprising to see some old european architecture. Outside of that, the huge crowd makes it difficult to enjoy.

We visited the Macau museum, the Ruins of St Pauls. Lots of people as you would expect. There are public toilets here which is helpful. Nice views from the top.

I go there because of the architecture and the floors! The designed floors by the traditional Portuguese black and white granite blows your mind.

Upscale shops and restaurants in this European square in the heart of Macao. Nearby the beautiful ruins of St. Paul's as well. Truly a unique experience in Macao/China.

The area was resrricted from building new one and preserved as 16th century europian quarter. Stone lanes and iron street lantane are nostalgic. Old municipal house is well preserved. Nearby suvinior shops sell sea products like fish intestine, bird nests and signature dried pork.

Haven't visited for close to 20 years dreading the glitzy new reclamation . Happy to see north with its historic heart remains, as does the southern end of the island. Far more charming, only 10km / 15 mins drive apart. This is where the fashion...More

Hi, The sites of the Central Macau are cobble stoned so may not be practical. It is flat for some of the way then there is a steep hill to the Church ruins. Plus it is very crowded. I would not recommend the visit
