Not too bad.

Great view to see the sunset and the too of Macau. It's just like a Macau's peak. Great view for photo taking and seeing the old Portuguese Macau place.

The fortress has been well looked after. There are some tunnels under the lighthouse used by the military in years gone by. There is a chair lift that takes you up to the top and back for a very small price. Great views of Macau from the top ( best on a clear day) We took a walk around the... More

Get to the hill on a cable car. Walking through a small museum in the tunnels through the hill you will get to the lighthouse and the church. The church is cool- the oldest fresco in Asia. The views up there are amazing and I'd for that if nothing else!

Worth the climb to the top and the toilets and airconditioned info centre and church at the top were a bonus! Theres a chairlift if the hike up is too much for you.

Although this is not the primary purpose for visiting Macau, it is an integral part of Macau's history. If you're a history buff, read about the Fortress in advance, and spend an hour visiting. If you aren't a history buff, have your taxi driver detour to take you there, take 2 or 3 photos, and continue on to your destination.

A nice Portuguese fortress with the oldest Portuguese lighthouse in Asia (perhaps in the world?). In the middle of one of the greenest places in the city and it has an amazing view over it.

First...it can be a fairly unpleasant walk when it is hot and humid. However, it is worth it. The facility is fascinating and there are several interesting exhibits. I enjoyed the tunnels and the typhoon warning display. I would suggest visitors go "off-roading" and visit the abandoned observation post that is between area A and B. There are a few... More

Guia Fortress is situated upon the top of Guia Hill, overlooking the city of Macau. It is one of the UNESCO World Heritage attractions and a common image scene of Macau seen in guidebooks. Interestingly, there is quite little to see of the actual fort. However, a new information centre has been opened this year. Here you can learn a... More

We are a family of 4 traveling with 2 others. We really enjoyed this outing to see the Guia Fortress. The cable car up is always fun with kids and it's a quick, cheap ride. Up top, we enjoyed visiting the museum and church and just walking around. Beautiful views of Macau. So glad we visited!

Walking up the hill was already half of the fun for this Place. On top there is the well preserved Fortress and a small Church to see. Further there are some military tunnels nearby. The view above Macau is stunning and keep you longer than planned.
