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.

Thoroughly recommend going to Guia Hill and visiting the fortress. A lot of history and great views of the city of Macau. Great break to experience open gardens in a very dense city.
