Great place visit. Especially if you arrive in Macau by ferry, this place will be the first destination since it is very close to the port. Two ways to get in and out. Cable car and walking. No entrance fee.

Can be very hot during summer, but it worth the walk (or I think you can reach the top by cable car if I recall). Then you can walk around the fortress and see all Macau and part of Zhuhai from above.
