Very nice walk

Take the cable car from the park and follow the short and easy trail. Great view from above the hill and definitely worth the walk.

Best time to visit the place is early in the morning or late afternoon...we went there on the afternoon and by the time we reached the place from guia cable car...we were sweating and our water bottle was already empty...If you are just only aiming to visit the fortress and not the jardim flora...best to take the other route near...

Great views of the city. Take the cable car to get there that costs next to nothing. There are nice play areas for the kids.

Just near St Paul's Cathedral and after a fairly tough walk up the stairs (take water!), the fort has amazing views over Macau. We missed out on looking inside the Museum as last visitor is allowed through at 5.30 & it closes at 6pm. Apparently when the Dutch tried to invade, one cannon ball was fired from this fort and...

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

Nice day out climbing the old Guia Fortress. Great panoramic views of Macau and China. Be aware that its quite a steep walk but totally worth it, again its nice to see some history in the casino city!

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

The cannons of the fort enabled the Portuguese founders and missionaries to survive centuries of rival explorers, drug trade, and pirates. It is a robust outpost that mixes the religious with the profane and also manages to house the Museum of Macau.
