We visited st Paul's Cathedral ruins as part of a day trip to Macau from Hong Kong booked through Viator. We were dropped off at the Cathedral by our tour bus a couple of streets from the Cathedral and arrived at the cathedral ruins from the rear. This meant we did not have to walk up the many many steps to get to the ruins which was good. The ruins are the facade of the front of the cathedral as you see in all the photos. There is nothing to see behind the facade except the supports and some garden beds. We walked down the stairs and took photos looking back up at the facade and then continued on walking though some back streets to see how people of Macau live. The majority of tourists head straight down the Main Street which is lined with market stalls and expensive brand name stores. The less touristy walk to the right at the bottom of the cathedral steps is definitely the better way to go in our opinion. Although the ruins are interesting it does look exactly like the photo and there isn't anything else to see but the ruins (facade) so if that's all you are going to Macau to see save yourself the long wait at immigration to and from Hong Kong.
