Citadel of Sao Paulo do Monte (Monte Fort)

Citadel of Sao Paulo do Monte (Monte Fort) in Macau

The citadel, located almost in the heart of Macau, was built by the Jesuits as part of the St. Paul's church project and also to serve as a defence from possible attacks. With the fire of a cannon ball, it managed to defend Macau from the attack of the Dutch when they tried to invade Macau in 1622.
It is now a public park and also houses the Museum of Macau with displays of the history of Macau and its relationship with China.
Opening hours :
May to September : 6.00am - 7.00pm
October to April : 7.00am - 6.00pm
