“Nice fortress with a decent view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We went up the fortress after going through the ruins of the cathedral, and it was worth our time. Going up will be a bit exhausting, it involves a fair amount of climbing stairs. The walls are not too medieval (not sure how to put it otherwise), but from up there, one has a reasonably nice view of some parts of northern Macau. There is also a museum on top, which we did not bother visiting.

“Cool Historical Site!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

You can really feel the mariners spirit here. It's small but a great perch to see most of Macau. The tiny church here is special.

“Fortress”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

This is definitively a good place to visit. Interesting walls and such, a good view from the top of the hill. You can either walk up the stairs or take the escalators near the back. There is also a museum but I believe their is a fee.

“Loved the view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Overlooking the sea! on top of the mountains as if you are riding a old sailboat! There is a lighthouse, a big ancient bell! a beautiful garden, a place to relax, the wind is quite strong and brings a fresh feeling, the swaying of the tall trees around the park, lovers sitting in the benches, old folks doing tai chi, others, yoga, some has red silk fans happily dancing together waiving their fans in the air. A restaurant, Chinese or Portuguese cuisine, affordable prices. But no one speaks English!

“Good view over most parts of Macau from the top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Its worth the walk and climb up the stairs to reach the top. Theres not much here beyond a few gardens, old cannon, the lighthouse of course...
