Guia Lighthouse Cultural Heritage Saved

blogguia.jpg 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!

  1. Hi Agent Laketrees,

    In the dark jungle of concrete skyscrapers rises a Lighthouse of Hope!

    The Great Wall of China sounds like a great idea anytime after Beijing 2008 and the Tibet “Trouble” (is that like Technorati Trouble? 😉 ) has slipped into history!

  2. hi Debbie
    good to hear that common sense has prevailed and that the lighthouse is unencumbered….
    speaking of walls…..I would love to see the great wall of China…. 🙂

  3. Ahoy Captain SpeedyCat,

    With a 1,000-foot high swells, are you still afloat in your boat? 😉

    Skipper: Well Gilligan don’t just stand there…throw Cappin Hollydale Galstones a Life Preserver!!

    Gilligan: We lost all our Life Preservers, Skipper Debbie.

    Skipper: Here, Gilligan throw Cappin Hollydale Galstones my 911 Bra from Olga for emergency support! 😀

  4. Ahoy there Debbie Dolphin!
    It is good to see that the world still has some sense to it. I can now make it into port using the Guia Lighthouse as my guide. The swells are 1000 feet tall today… (sea sickness limited my dinner to 5 bowls of chicken raviolios) There is always tomorrow.
