Stroll some more and you will eventually find the Ruins of St. Paul's. This is one of the most famous, if not the most famous landmark of Macau. Go there and discover for yourself how famous it is. I have been there twice, and in both occasions, huge crowds of tourists are there, whiling their time in the 66 stone steps leading to the facade. The windows of this grand facade can be climbed from the rear via an improvised steel staircase.

But our strolling does not end here! Explore some more and somewhere near the Ruins of St. Pauls, you will see Museu de Macau silently perched. Expect a bit of hiking if the escalator is not working, because Museu de Macau is located on the hill of Fortaleza do Monte. Due to time constraint, we did not enter so the stuff inside remains a mystery to me, but its exteriors alone are photo-worthy.
