Ruins of St. Paul's – What is left of the Church of Mater Dei, the Ruins of St. Paul’s is the façade, what all of remains of the church. The Church of Mater Dei was built during 1602 to 1640 by the Portuguese colonizers of Macau. The original structure were all Jesuit constructions including the neighboring St. Paul’s College and Mount Fortress. It formed what was then Macau’s ‘Acropolis’ but was later destroyed by fire in 1835. The remaining façade shows the original decidedly oriental decorative motifs that are mannerist in style. Go near the structure to see several biblical images, nautical motifs, and mythological motifs along with numerous Chinese characters, Japanese chrysanthemums, a Portuguese ship – all of which depict the history of Macau.
Senado Square – A UNESCO World Heritage site, the Senado Square is the historic center of Macau. It is a paved town square that is reminiscent of the main parliament squares found in Europe. The town square has several fountains located at the center of the square that seemingly puts life elements among the architectural and rock-steady buildings. While the Senado Square is definitely beautiful during the day with its pastel and light-colored structures, it is even more beautiful and livelier at night when the square is all lit up with lights.
Macau Tower – Inspired by the Sky Tower in Auckland, New Zealand, the Macau Tower was built and commissioned by Hong Kong’s casino billionaire, Stanley Hung-Sun. The tower is also an entertainment and convention center complete with restaurants, shopping malls, theaters and the famous Skywalk X, which is a thrilling walking tour around the outer rim of Macau Tower.
