Guia Fortress, Macau

(500+ reviews on the web)
Lighthouse
Head up to the city's highest point to see Guia Fortress, a 17th century hilltop fortress. The fort and chapel were built between 1622 and 1638 during the times of Portuguese colonial rule, the buildings display a distinctly Iberian architectural style. The lighthouse here, constructed later between 1864 and 1865, was the first Western-style lighthouse in east Asia, and it offers extensive views of the city below. The whole complex forms part of the Historic Centre of Macau World Heritage Site, with its distinctive, well-preserved architecture and impressive frescoes. A visit to Guia Fortress represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Macau tourist route planner to plot your vacation.

  • The most interesting features of Guia Hill and Fortress are the military tunnels. The set near the lighthouse is open all the time, but the group near the cable car is only open on selected days. Use ...  more »
  • 喜歡燈塔白色的建築及黃色的線條點綴,旁邊還有座聖母雪地殿教堂,裡面的壁畫遺跡是中西文化和藝術的大融匯。  more »
