Located on the Guia Hill, the highest hill of Macau Peninsular, Guia Fortress is a 17th-century colonial military fort built between 1622 and 1638. Also referred to as Fortaleza da Guia, it houses Guia Chapel and Guia Lighthouse which together make the fortress a symbol of Macau’s military, maritime and missionary past. The visitors can get an exemplary panoramic view of Historic Centre of Macau and Macau Peninsular as the fort was built as a central observation post during colonial times for defence purposes.
Guia Fortress has been listed in the UNESCO World Heritage Site as a part of the Historic Centre of Macau. The murals here present an amalgamation of Chinese and Western religious and mythological motifs which showcase the cultural fusion and understanding. One among the eight famous attractions of Macau, Guia Fort consists of barracks, an ammunition cache, a water cistern, commander’s house, a small art gallery and a storage area. There is also a café and a tourist information centre on the hill.
