A bit of a walk but so much history and culture that can be seen. It's for free but if you wanna see the museum inside you have to pay for it.

This 16th century Vauban style fortress, with old cannons still in place, gives wonderful 360 degree views ov Central Macau, and should not be missed on any visit to Macau.

A place worth visiting, if nothing more than to see another side of Macau. The ruins of St Paul's are the draw, but surely the castle is the main attraction. It's a bit of a climb, especially if it's a humid day, but the views...More
