Guia Lighthouse Cultural Heritage Saved
On April 16, 2008, the Macau government finally issued a regulation to protect the view of Guia Lighthouse, a UNESCO world heritage site.
After months of public pressure, UN pressure on China, and China’s pressure on Macau, all buildings underneath the Guia Lighthouse from Macau Fisherman’s Wharf to the Tap Seac Square will be restricted to height limits that vary depending on the location of the building on Guia Hill.
Jaime Carion, the director of the Lands, Public Works and Transport Bureau, stated “We need to find a way to balance the city’s development with its cultural heritage sites.” The report about 443-foot high wall of Tall Towers in a previous post cannot exceed the height of 172-feet which will allow Guia Lighthouse to shine out to sea unobstructed!
