Guia Lighthouse, Macau

4.4
Witness a monumental piece of Macau's colonial history at Guia Lighthouse. The first colonial-style lighthouse on the Chinese coast, this 19th-century structure is 15 m (49 ft) tall and stands on the highest point of the eponymous hill. Though visitors cannot enter the lighthouse itself, a nearby museum narrates the history of the structure and features a small chapel next door. Enjoy the captivating views of the Macau skyline while taking yourself back to simpler times, when this lighthouse served an integral role in navigation and warned the city's residents of incoming typhoons.

  • When visiting Macao it is mandatory to visit here, as Guia Lighthouse is the iconic tourist icon of Macau in addition to the Macau Tower and ruins of St Paul's cathedral. To enter the free alias there is no charge and the his is quite safe to explore and there are guards who are in it.

  • what a nice walk at the park and ended with a cable ride from hill top to the floral garden in the city. there are several heritage attractions around the Guia lighthouse; information centre, simple hiking route, Lady of Guia chapel (photo taking forbidden), Guia Fortress and an existing Typhoon signal room. its very tidy, clean all around; with a slow in pace atmosphere. certainly will visit again.
  • Located on the top of the hill with nice view of the city. There are many way up to the lighthouse, a longer but not too steep way and a shorter way with a steeper way. Nice walk on the park rounding the hill to the top.
