Impressive tower
Aug 2019
Tour du Fanal is a lighthouse. This Lighthouse was built in the middle of the 17th century in order to facilitate the guidance of merchant ships as they entered the harbour. It is quite photogenic and it certainly attracts the attention of visitors. It was supposed to be able to be seen by merchant ships from as far as twenty kilometres away! Today visitors can climb up and enjoy the panoramic views it offers on a sunny day.
