Witness a monumental piece of Macau's colonial history at Guia Lighthouse. The first colonial-style lighthouse on the Chinese coast, this 19th-century structure is 15 m (49 ft) tall and stands on the highest point of the eponymous hill. Though visitors cannot enter the lighthouse itself, a nearby museum narrates the history of the structure and features a small chapel next door. Enjoy the captivating views of the Macau skyline while taking yourself back to simpler times, when this lighthouse served an integral role in navigation and warned the city's residents of incoming typhoons. Guia Lighthouse is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Macau Edition.

  • During an afternoon of sight seeing, we discovered the Guia Lighthouse. It's a definite must visit when in Macau. Awesome views of Macau and in quite a picturesque spot. 
  • Great park and kids playground, interesting sites and history place. Amazing tram to the top of the mountain. 
  • The gentlest path to access the Guia fortress is by a cable car (very inexpensive, just about half a buck). It is on a hill in a middle of a big parkland, right in the middle. The Guia fortress along with the lighthouse is the symbol of Macau military, maritime and missionary past.
  • The 1638 built and the first lighthouse in the Far East Asia and still in operation.
  • It is a place for escaping to the nature. This is the place where you can see the city of Macau.
  • Nice scene from above. I wonder how the view would look like at night.
  • Place to discover Portuguese architectures and a lesson of long Macau history.
