One of the oldest institutions in Macau and a mammoth building in the middle of Santo Antonio, the Monte Fort is also known as Fortaleza do Monte. Boasting a phenomenal collection of cannons, barracks, cisterns, and storehouses that were used in important battles the fort does not disappoint. Before becoming a military fort, it belonged to St. Paul’s Church and defended the church from pirates. It is also among the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites and offers a panoramic view from its top which leaves the visitors mesmerized. While walking around the fort one cannot help but feel the importance of the structure from its stoic architecture to its thick walls and huge archways the structure stands out against the otherwise delicate and beautiful Macau skyline.
