Dominating the Guia Hill is the Guia Lighthouse, Fortress and Chapel. On the peninsula of Macau, this is the second highest hill and it is a major historic attraction and scenic spot in Macau that is a bit off the beaten path. The Portuguese placed defensive fortifications here, and this fortress saw actual combat when the Dutch tried to take... More

Best accessed via the cable car is this park like fortress setting. We encountered very few people up here apart from a number of locals making use of the extensive exercise equipment and sporting fields. We followed one of the paths which wound along the top of the hill towards the fortress and lighthouse. On the way were a few... More

We walked up to/from the fortress which in hindsight was not a great idea as some of the roads were not particularly pedestrian friendly. The fortress itself offers great views of the city on a clear day and is free entry so recommended.

The fort provides great views i all directions over the city, whilst the tunnels underneath the fort constructed for the Japanese invasion that never happened are pretty interesting too. The lighthouse and outer walls were receiving a bit of renovation but it was still a great, free attraction.

A real Fort with real cannons and great atmosphere make this a must for kids and adults. The little tea shop is well worth the visit if just for the nick-nacks to buy.

We visited the place yet sad to say that it was under reconstruction. Though, we didn't have good picture with it, one good thing is it is in a high place and you can see the city with a good view of some casino.

A great place for a great view of Macao. We took the cable car up and walked down. It´s a little bit difficult to find from there, just walk right. Currently under renovation (January 2015).

Enjoy the long, level paths with views of the city, then take in the 16th century gun emplacements and chapel on the peak. Invest two hours and see some history and nature.

Its a beautiful day to spend an afternoon, you can walk around the garden and have a beautiful view of Macau. A lots of wedding couples go there to have their pics taken. There´s a mine where the old soldiers built in to hide in case there´s a nuclear bomb too
