It took me longer than planned to get to Guia Lighthouse. It was almost closing time. Took the cable car up. Though there isn't any spectacular view from the cable car, it offered an interesting glimpse into the surrounding areas. Took me about 8 minutes to get to the fort (note that I was in a hurry.) Not much space... More

Nice stop to get a view of the city. Take a taxi and then walk a short ways up the rest of the way to the lighthouse.

At the top you can find gardens, fitness machines and... the Guia Fortress with a Church and lighthouse with an awesome view over Macau! Underneath the fortress you can... More

I went to Guia Fortress about a friend to run. My friends and I went to the Flora Garden, take the cable car up the mountain, the price of the cable car is very cheap, as long as a few dollars can be, but the journey is very short, a few minutes from the mountains. My friends and I used... More

This Guia fort is excellently built and you can expect a spectacular view of Macau from the top. This is one of the historical monuments in Macau. Though you would need to find hard way to reach here by walking uphill roads, but once you reach at the top, you will cherish the pain taken. I would strongly recommend this... More
