Guia Fortress & Guia Chapel information
As the highest point on the peninsula, Guia Fort affords panoramic views of the city and, when the air is clear, across to the islands and China. At the top is the stunning Chapel of Our Lady of Guia built in 1622 and retaining almost 100% of its original features, including some of Asia’s most valuable frescoes. Next to it stands the oldest modern lighthouse on the China coast (1865) – an attractive 15m-tall structure that is closed to the public.
You could walk up, but it’s easier to take the Guia cable car that runs from the entrance of Flora Gardens , Macau’s largest public park.
