Mount Fortress

Situated next to the ruins of St. Paul's is the Mount Fortress, which was used to successfully fend off a Dutch invasion of Macao in 1622. Unfortunately, the main structure burned down in a large blaze, leaviung only the flat, trapezoidal fortress platform. Today it is filled with greenery, and it one of the best vantage points to view the city. In 1989, the Macao Musesum was built within the fortress, offering visitors a look at Macau history and culture.
