Mong-Há Fort (Chinese: 望廈炮台; Portuguese: Fortaleza de Mong-Há) is a fort on Mong-Há Hill, Nossa Senhora de Fátima, Macau, China. The fort is part of a greater military reservation - the Bairro Militar de Mong-Há, which included the Quartel de Mong-Há (Mong-Há Barracks). The Bairro Militar is bound by the Rua Francisco Xavier Pereira and the Colina de Mong-Há. The main fort complex was erected 1849 by Governor Ferreira do Amaral to protect the Macau's northern sector as precaution against a possible Chinese invasion following the First Opium War between Britain and China (1839-1842).
The fort's construction began in 1849 and was completed in 1864/66. The Quartel de Mong-Há was constructed in the 1920s. With the complete withdrawal of the Portuguese military establishment in the 1960s following the Sino-Portuguese rapprochement, the fort and the Bairro Militar were deactivated, with the former being turned over to the Instituto de Formação Turística de Macau in the 1980s. In June 1997, the area surrounding the fort was transformed into the Jardim Municipal de Mong-Há.

혹시 기아요새와 몬테요새를 보고 감명받아 나처럼 이곳까지 올생각 하지 마시길.. 올라가기도 힘들고 올라와도 볼거리도, 경치도 하나도 없는.. GP가 이것보다 클껄요

The Mong Ha Fortress and hilltop is a quite area of Macau that is now a public space. The hill and old fort is a bit far north for most visitors but we consider it an interesting place to spend time if you have done the rounds of popular attractions and are looking for something new and different to see in Macau. At Mong Ha hill you can find walkways near the walls of the old Portuguese fort, which was formally abandoned in the 1960s upon agreement between the China and Portugal. Historically, the Portuguese had a fort constructed here after the first Opium War in 1841. Completed in 1866, the fort served the purpose of discouraging Chinese incursion upon Portuguese controlled Macau. Unfortunately, compared to Monte Forte in the Historic City Centre, there is very little to see of the old Mong Ha fort. Also, views from the walking paths here are less preferred to what you can find at Guia Hill, nearer to the historic city centre. However, they are not bad. Other interesting things to see at Mong Ha Hill include the large Lin Fung Temple at the northern end of the hill, the Ox Warehouse contemporary art gallery on the western side, just off Avenida do Almirante Lacerda and the popular IFT Educational restaurant found at the top of Mung Ha Hill.

望廈炮台（或稱望廈山炮台、蓮峰山炮台）是位於澳門望廈山市政公園之古老炮台。由於位處海拔60米高的望廈山上，故曾是葡萄牙殖民地時期的軍事防禦據點之一。 望廈炮台初建於1849年（清道光二十九年），1864年－1866年（清同治三年）重修落成。望廈炮台由澳門總督亞馬留負責監督興建，是為葡萄牙在澳門實施殖民主義之後第一座興建之炮台。昔日是澳門重要的軍事防禦據點之一，可裝置10門大炮，其位置可俯瞰澳門關閘一帶地區之活動。1960年，望廈炮台停止使用。曾駐有來自葡屬非洲的士兵，故又稱黑鬼山。 在望廈山東麓、俾利喇街以東澳廣視對面，有一兵營，但於2008年面對保留的呼聲仍然被拆毀，現已建成社會房屋望賢樓。 望廈炮台佔地約700平方米，形狀為矩形，而門口旁的火藥庫則是圓形。炮台圍牆身為花崗石，約有6米高。炮台的入口寬2.5米，高3米，門是厚木門，入口屋頂則鋪設長麻石。其入口的圍牆上設有11個槍眼，另炮台上設有一個高出平台4米的混凝土觀察台。炮台內，有通道通往附近之火藥庫和觀察台。與澳門區內的其他炮台不同，此炮台的炮口是朝向中國，直指關閘方向。
