Small fortress wall around the Guia lighthouse, really nice views from the highest peak on Macau. I personally didn't see the cable car, but walking up the steep hills is great exercise for sure.

No entrance fee, need to walk a little up the hill but no uneven path so it should be easy. Nothing much to see about the fort but the view is nice. Halfway to the fort there is a bench, sitting at the bench while...More

Contrary to some reviews, the walk up is leisurely and relaxed and not as steep or challenging as some online reviews made them out to be. Good after-dinner exercise.

The fortress and lighthouse are on the same site. It is located inside and on top of the recreational park. Locals come to the park to exercise and the fortress is a short uphill hike.

A short cable car ride to the top. Cost next to nothing. No entry fee to the park. The fort closes by 1800, so need to plan accordingly. The part itself is super on the top of a mountain. There are lovely paths for walking....More
