The Ruins Of St Paul's.

A photograph taken in Macau. This frontage was once part of the largest Catholic church in all of Asia! Most of this building was destroyed by fire in 1835, but the church frontage still exists and is in fact one of Macau's most famous landmarks. I was expecting a gambling mecca - and sure enough Macau didn't disappoint in this respect, but I was pleasantly surprised to stumble across this historic place. 'The Ruins of St Paul' (once the 'Cathedral Of St Paul') is a 17th century Portuguese relic dedicated to 'Saint Paul The Apostle'.
