  • It is said that it goes up the slope from the center. The slope is hard. It is close to the Royal Hotel and the Gia Hotel.

  • It's a small, pretty place. It's not a magnificent place, but i think it's a beautiful place with a quiet atmosphere. It's a great place to stay.

  • The ascent to Guia Hill was quite tiring so we took many stops along the ramp. Nestled at the top was the lighthouse that looked like a bell and a chapel beside it. There were very nice frescos inside the small church but taking photos was not allowed. From the summit, you can get a good panoramic view Macau from east to southwest direction.
  • The Guia Chapel, also known as the Chapel of Our Lady of Guia (1622) is situated upon the top of Guia Hill, overlooking the city of Macau. It is one of the UNESCO World Heritage attractions and an iconic image of Macau. You can access the two chamber chapel from 10am to 5.30pm to view the unique European-Chinese frescos seen here. Note no picture-taking allowed. Of much interest, there is a new information centre has been opened this year at the Guia Fortress attractions, just below the chapel. Within the new centre, is a room with details regarding the frescos you can see. This is very helpful to find and read over as there is no information in the chapel itself explaining the frescos you will see there. In addition to spending a few minutes in the chapel, you can walk around the famous Guia Lighthouse (no entrance), the building just next to the chapel. You can walk through a short tunnel at the back side of the fort and enjoy the 270 degree scenes of the city of Macau from this position. The views are very good and worth taking time to enjoy if you decide to visit the Guia Hill attractions. Note: For a bit of exercise, you can walk up to Guia Hill from Rua do Campo in the main city centre. Take Rua de Ferreira do Amaral towards Royal Macau Hotel. Pass the hotel and continue to Hotel Guia on Calcado do Gaio. At the hotel, you'll see the continued ascending street to the base of Guia Hill and its attractions. From there you can walk up a zigzag of cobblestoned walkway to the entrance of the fort, where the Guia Chapel is located. Note: For a more leisurely and faster way up Guia Hill, you can ride the cable car (MOP2 one way, MOP3 return). The cable car lower station is situated at the entrance to Flora Garden located on Rua de Ferreira do Amaral. This is a fun way to ascend the hill and a good option for families visiting Macau and in search of child friendly activities.
