Fortaleza do Monte (Mount Fortress)
Fortaleza do Monte (Mount Fortress) Review
On the hill overlooking the ruins of São Paulo and affording great peninsular views, this renovated fort was built by the Jesuits in the early 17th century. In 1622 it was the site of Macau's most legendary battle, when a priest's lucky cannon shot hit an invading Dutch ship's powder supply, saving the day. The interior buildings were destroyed by fire in 1835, but the outer walls remain, along with several large cannons and artillery pieces. Exhibits at the adjoining Macau Museum (daily 10–6, MOP$15) take you through the territory's history, from its origins to modern development.
