  • I could see things i hadn't seen here before. I value this place so much that I learn about history, and it was meaningful.

  • There are 3 tunnel systems underneath Guia Hill that served its military purpose during WW2. But only two are open to the public: Complex A and B. The former is 50 meters in length and runs underneath the Guia Hill Lighthouse. It has an electric generator, a fuel storage tank and staff quarters for those who man the facility. Complex B, the longer passageway, is about 456 meters. It has a storage room, a powder magazine and equipment for hoisting weapons and ammunition. These facilities were constructed in 1931. The tunnels, which were converted into a museum, are accessible via Rampa da Guia. For those who are claustrophobic, as the width is really narrow (only enough for two people to go abreast together) the interior walls are painted bright yellow and are very well-illuminated. Visitors are only allowed to move in one direction, hence, the entrance is separate from the exit. Maximum capacity per visit is 15 persons. Ventilation is free-flowing. Entrance to the air raid shelter tunnel is free. Tunnel Complex A is open 10 AM - 5 PM everyday, except Mondays. Tunnel Complex B is open 3 PM - 5 PM Saturdays and Sundays and visitors need to be accompanied by a tour guide.
  • The Guia Military tunnels are part of the UNESCO World Heritage listed Guia Fortress located upon the top of Guia Hill, overlooking the city of Macau. The Fort hours are 9am to 5.30pm but the tunnels are only open from 10am to 5pm - worth keeping in mind if you intend to visit in the morning and want to enter the tunnel. In short, the Guia tunnels were designed as an air raid shelter. There is a small stretch that you can enter in front of the Guia Fort and walk through, coming out the other end of the Fort. The entire walk through the tunnel last just a couple of minutes. You will find general information and maps detailing the full extend of the tunnels upon Guia Hill, most of which are not open to the public. There are some pictures along the tunnel walls as well. In the end, the Guia Military Tunnels are an interesting part of the Guia Hill and Fort experience. They are not essential to see but are quick, convenient and free so why not have a look if you plan to spend time at Guia Hill during your visit to Macau. Note: You can walk (more like hike) up the trails leading to Guia Hill. These require time and effort, not the best choice for those visiting on a day trip or trying to squeeze in as much sightseeing as possible during short stays in Macau. If this is you - take a taxi! Note: For families with a bit more time, a fun way to visit Guia Hill and Fort is by way of the Guia Cable Car, located at nearby Flores Garden. Rides are cheap (MOP2 single ride, MOP3 return) and take just a few minutes. There is never a crowd either. Cable Car terminus is located at the entrance to the garden.
