Great views on Macau from this prime location. A visit to the Macau Museum at the fortress also makes for a nice introduction to Macau’s past, with a great balance between Chinese and Portuguese heritage.

It’s a bit of a hike up to the fort, but once there the view is great and there is a lovely museum. The museum is well worth a visit. Once done there, it is an easy walk to St. Paul’s Ruins.

We spotted the venue when visiting the famous St Paul's Church ruin and found that the place was actually more interesting than the ruin. It takes a while to climb up the stairs but once you are on the top, it offers grand open space...More

Nice views from Mount Fortress (as our guide called it) and our 13 year old son enjoyed imagining the cannons blowing up the casinos, which they seem to be aimed at. A good take in and worth a few minutes of your day in Macau.

Worth the walk up the hill, even if you don't visit the museum. Looking out at this height can give you a better mental plan for exploring this fascinating city. Good photo opp with the old cannons too!

It directly faces the bay and the sea which, during early times, was the main point of entry to Macau. Its long perimeter walls were heavily built and fortified, with menacing cannons aimed towards the sea, to protect the small city from invading enemy navies....More

It's like the pyramids on a small scale. How the heck did they get those rocks, cannon etc up there? and with near vertical sides and straight lines, and in that humidity. And aren't the Portugese the original inventors of the Siesta? Absolutely amazing feat...More

After a short hike you will reach a small yet very interesting place to visit. In a very well preserved area tens of tremendous canyons guard the fort. Views from to of the hill are breathtaking and perhaps is the only place without a casino,...More
