Enjoy the long, level paths with views of the city, then take in the 16th century gun emplacements and chapel on the peak. Invest two hours and see some history and nature.

Its a beautiful day to spend an afternoon, you can walk around the garden and have a beautiful view of Macau. A lots of wedding couples go there to have their pics taken. There´s a mine where the old soldiers built in to hide in case there´s a nuclear bomb too

The cannons make for neat photo ops of the ancient shooting the modern. The fort can be seen without paying to enter the museum and its right next to the ruins of St. Paul's Church.

We really like visiting this area with our two kids. The day we were there, they had the tunnels open for tours. These were the tunnels the Portugese army built around and under the fort. It was fun and we took the cable car to the bottom. Nice visit!

This fortress and lighthouse is in the middle of a fair sized park and is not the easiest place to walk to. As such, it is relatively quiet and pleasantly away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The walk to the fortress itself is through a pleasant park and the fortress, at the highest point in the city,... More

Nice old cannons to take some photos with, but the surroundings are not that scenic. The Museum of Macau is located nearby this fortress too.

The walk up to the Fortress was worth in and enjoyed seeing the old cannons and the views. There is a museum there too.

There is a good view of the city from the top around the lighthouse as this is the highest point in Macau. We rode the cable car almost to the top and it is a pleasant sloping paved walk the rest of the way. There was exercise equipment spaced along the path that was being used by locals. The history...

The fort is crowned with a light house that still hoists storm warnings when needed. The fort is surrounded with a beautiful park on a hill that has many very long underground tunnels used for defense against a Japanese invasion during World War II that never happened. The lighthouse area offers spectacular view of the Pearl River Delta and the... More
