Hike up to the Guia Light House and Fortress

Travel Bulletin - - MACAO -

FOR fit­ness fa­nat­ics or hol­i­day-mak­ers that like to get the blood pump­ing, a hike up to the sum­mit of Guia Hill to see the light house and fortress is a must-do. Built in 1865 as a chief ob­ser­va­tion post dur­ing colo­nial times, the fort is well pre­served and still con­tains within bar­racks, a wa­ter cis­tern, an am­mu­ni­tion cache and a chapel. The light­house within is the old­est on the Chi­nese coast and tow­ers 91 me­tres high, with its beam able to be seen from up to 30 kilo­me­tres away.
