We took the cable car to the top of the hill and then walked to the Fortress. Despite the heat, much of the walkways were shaded and it was a terrific way to get a view of Macau and also escape the city for a little while. I think it would be a nice way to picnic if you are... More

beautiful views from up there and the walk in the garden to reach it is also very refreshing. You can also take the bubbles to go there

Although this was a significant hike up the hill from the old part of town , it was worth it with stunning views and interesting old church and lighthouse. The cable car also operates close to the fortress and for those inclined there are a number of fitness tracks in the area

We have to climb up small slope and hill to reach the top. There is 150 years old church with preserved drawing and light tower. We can view the beautiful Macau scenery

A perfect point to take photos and explore the heritage that is around you, from the cannons pointed at casinos to the wide views around worth a trip

I'm biased because I'm Portuguese, so every heritage like fortresses and constructions bearing Portuguese signs centuries old just stir emotions ;-)

Walk the exterior stairs and you will be rewarded with some fine views of the city. Hopefully it's a clear day so you can take some great photos!

A high point in Macau atop the museum with a commanding 360 degree view of the city. Can see the new area in Wan Kum, China where the new university for Macau is located.
