#86 - Guia Lighthouse

The Guia Fort in Macau consists of a chapel and lighthouse. The lighthouse was completed in 1865, making it the oldest lighthouse in the Far East.

If you look closely at the image, you might be able to see the Portuguese flag flying to the left of the ligthhouse; that's because they settled in this area sometime in the 16th century and maintained control of Macau until 1999.
