Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Region of Murcia / Municipality of Cartagena / Cabo de Palos / Faro Cabo de palos
Standing tall on a rocky hilltop above the town of Cabo de Palos, 81 m (265 ft) above sea level, Faro Cabo de palos serves as a symbol of the city and the cape itself. Originally designed as a watchtower to help fend off pirate attacks, the lighthouse in its present form dates from 1864. Observe the tower’s flashing signal light, which lights up every ten seconds, as you admire its stone facade and elegant construction. While the lighthouse itself does not have any other facilities, the surrounding town is home to many restaurants specializing in Spanish seafood dishes. Although the lighthouse itself is not open to the public, there is a parking lot at the base of the tower from which you can marvel at the panoramic ocean views.
