Guia Fortress

Fieldset:

Located on the highest spot in Macau, Guia Fortress is three structures in one: a fortress constructed (1622 – 1638) to defend the city against Dutch invasion; a chapel established by Clarist nuns in 1622 for the fortress's soldiers, and China's first modern lighthouse, built in 1865. Though the lighthouse is not open to the public, the chapel's restoration work in the 1990s uncovered well-preserved frescoes that are a must-visit for those interested in art history.
