Macau Day 2: Ruins of St Paul’s & Mount Fortress

19 Oct

Ruins of St Paul’s is one of the most symbolic sites of attraction in Macau. The Ruins of St Paul’s is actually the facade of the original church and St Paul’s college which had been destroyed by a fire in 1835. The Ruins bears a unique blend of biblical and oriental motifs, emphasizing the impact of Portuguese rule in Macau. Piggletino took many steps to get up there!

Taking a turn to the right of St Paul’s, Piggletino decided to check out Mount Fortress, which was once a military defence structure against Dutch invasion by sea in the 1600s. You can still see several cannons on the fort that overlooks the city at all angles. Today, the Macau Museum sits at the Fortress.

Very quickly, Piggletino decides to take a trishaw off to somewhere else! Goodbye Macau!
