The half of the MACRO detector, a large area Monopole, Astrophysics, Cosmic Ray Observatory is nearly completed in Hall B of the Gran Sasso Laboratory. One supermodule is already taken data and the remainder will be activated in few months. A general overview of the MACRO detector, together with its physics capabilities as far as the search for point sources of high energy neutrino is concerned, will be presented.
