Guia Fort information
Lonely Planet review
As the highest point on the Macau Peninsula, this fort affords panoramic views of the city and, when the air is clear, across to the islands and China. At the top you’ll find a 15m-tall lighthouse, built in 1865 and the oldest on the China coast, and 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 mural paintings.
You could walk up, but it’s easier to take the Guia Cable Car that runs from the entrance to Flora Gardens , Macau’s largest public park.
