Macau is a lovely place and it has many reminders of its old Portuguese history, of which this is one. Only the stairs and facade of the church remain due to a fire disaster. Make sure you look at the carvings on the outside around the doors as they are very interesting. Behind the facade you can also visit the crypt and see some of the old artifacts from the church that have been preserved. Make sure you also plan to visit the old fort and museum next door when you go. There are escalators to get up the hill which provides good access for people who have troubles walking.

We almost thought of sipping it as its a cab ride from venetian but in the end I m glad we visited it. Worth a visit. Do not skip it. Close to a very nice local market as well.

This is a beautiful are to wonder about in Macau. There is so much more than just the ruins. If you stick simply to the ruins, you are missing out. Head to the right of the ruins and there are gardens, massive aged trees, and a walk up to the Macau museum that has greenery, and great sights. We also got to see a lot of the local elderly folk getting about with their different exercises, including a group of elderly women learning pairs dancing and another group doing tai chi. It was marvellous to behold.

The food and shops around here are good also, but if food isn't really on your agenda, I would suggest heading here nice and early in the morning. Macau sleeps in, so the shops and what not don't really open until 10.30am-11am at the earliest. If you get here by 8am or 9am, you will miss the bulk of the tourists and get to wonder and take in the sights without the noise and hustle bustle.
