    Introduction: Macao Peninsula (Northwest)

    Green Island Hill, which rises 57 metres above sea level, was formerly a small granite island in the river which was settled initially by the Jesuits. It was covered with trees, giving rise to its Chinese names of Qing Zhou (Green Oasis) or Lok Dao (Green Island). In 1890, the Portuguese authorities built a causeway linking Lin Fong Temple to the Macao Peninsula. Further land reclamation around the foot of the hill has allowed it to merge onto the peninsula. Today, the ruins of a monastery can still be found on the hill.
