Information of Mount Fortress (Fortaleza do Monte) from MACAU GOVERNMENT TOURIST OFFICE (visit link)

Mount Fortress is part of The Historic Centre of Macau - a World Heritage Site.

The First Western Fortress in China

The 17th Century Mount Fortress occupies a hilltop on the peninsula of Macau and is one of the most ancient Western fortresses in China.

Some 300 years ago, during the height of the Ming Dynasty and before the Ruins of St. Paul's Roman Catholic Church was severely damaged by fire, the Mount Fortress solemnly guarded the city. In 1998, the three-level Macau Museum was built into the fortress hill and it is now considered a major tourist attraction.

大炮台

中國最古老的西式炮台

唐詩有云:「欲窮千里目,更上一層樓。」站在高山上,的確會看得真看得遠。

屹立於澳門半島上的大炮台,不但高人一等,更是中國最古老的西式炮台之一。大炮台多年來看盡澳門的時代變遷,360度全方位全天候笑看風雲!

300多年前明朝年間,當聖保祿教堂還沒被火燒,未當上大三巴牌坊之時,大炮台已經存在。到了今時今日,位於大炮台原營房舊址的則是在1998年建造的澳門博物館,與大炮台一脈相承地保存著澳門的歷史文化,也是現在澳門的旅遊熱點之一。
