Ruins of St Paul - Macau

The Cathedral of St. Paul was built by the Portuguese in the 17th century in Macau. The church was destroyed by a fire which started in the middle of a typhoon in 1835 (which is sort of hard to picture). Once the largest Roman Catholic church in Asia, the site still draws big crowds as part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site – The Historic Centre of Macau.
