It's quite a hike up to the fortress and lighthouse, but worth it. There is a cable car system that will take you from the foot of the hill, but it doesn't go to the fortress, so you will need to hike regardless. The lighthouse...More

We walked upto this place. The ambience is average. Seating spaces are few. Drinks and snacks are not easily available. Views are also not so astounding

There are three things to see. The fortress tower that oversee the sea, the small chapel with the unique mural, and a lighthouse.

Went to the fortress and certainly worth the effort (is a bit of climb but there is a very short chairlift & you can drive to a carpark part of the way up). Has a lot of history of the fortress protecting Macau & accommodating...More
