Geocache Description:

A small round Lock & Lock, please bring your own pen

While checking the observation post(? - according to reference book, those should be gun emplacements) on Guia Hill, meet this pillbox (according to reference book, this should be observation post) accidentally.

Also, a much modern gun emplacement (compare with the fortress of front load cannon) nearby ~ Oh! I never know Macao had this kind of pillbox & emplacement before.
