The most interesting features of Guia Hill and Fortress are the military tunnels. The set near the lighthouse is open all the time, but the group near the cable car is only open on selected days. Use the cable car to climb the hill, then...More

Definitely a must visit. You get a beautiful view of Macau skyline from the top of the fortress. The lighthouse was under repairs but it is nicely maintained. There is a small museum with old artifacts, weapons, typhoon signals, etc...

The Guia Fortress is the smaller of the remaining forts, but it is beautifully preserved. Warning, if walking to the fort, it is quite a steep hill and not advisable in the summer heat, unless you are well acclimated to sub-tropical humidity.

Sadly, the answer is no. You can walk up Calcado do Goia (street) past Hotel Guia and then up the street to the base of Guia Hill and Fortress attractions, but the rest of the walk is on cobblestoned walkways that are uneven... More
