Monte Fort (Fortaleza do Monte) Tours

star-4.5
76 Reviews
Monte Fort (Fortaleza do Monte)
Built by the Jesuits to repel an attack from the sea, the Monte Fort (Fortaleza de Monte) is the oldest military fortification on the Macau peninsula. Though cannons were readied and defense preparations made, the only military action the Monte Fort ever saw was during an unsuccessful raid by the Dutch in 1622.
 
The Basics
The Monte Fort, along with the Macau Museum inside, is one of Macau’s most popular historic attractions. Visitors can climb the battlements for sweeping views over the casinos of Macau while learning about the history of the Macau Peninsula and islands. Many sightseeing tours, including day trips from Shenzhen and Hong Kong, include a visit to the fort, along with other points of interest, like the Macau Tower, Church of St. Paul, and A-Ma Temple.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Monte Fort is a must-see for history buffs and first-time visitors to Macau.
  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven surfaces.
  • The fort is a great place to get away from the crowds.
  • The museum located on the grounds of the fort is wheelchair accessible, and wheelchairs are available at the ticketing office.
 
How to Get There
The Monte Fort is located adjacent to the ruins of St. Paul on the Macau Peninsula, a short walk from Senado Plaza. Several public buses stop at Hospital Kiang Wu station near the fortress.
 
When to Get There

The fort and museum are open year-round. Plan to visit at sunset on a clear day for the best possible views from the top of the fort’s battlements.
 
Historical Centre of Macau
The Monte Fort is part of the greater UNESCO World Heritage-listed Historical Centre of Macau. To get a comprehensive view of this UNESCO attraction, make sure to visit the ruins of St. Paul’s, A-Ma Temple, Mandarin’s House, Dom Pedro V Theatre, and the old city walls.
