Guia Fortress, Macau

(4.2/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I think is a world heritage site located in bad access from the Macau S.A.R. Centre a short distance away, the view from here well, it wouldn't hurt. Went on foot from Lisboa, is about 15 minutes. You must climb a steep hill slope, but a movement. Even when it is crowded with tourists of many fine.

  • 真係行到冇嘢好行 呢啲景點 先至會去 因為交通都唔係太方便 附近亦都唔會有酒店畀你洗下錢 但係影下相 散下心 都係一個好地方
