Perspective of a Lighthouse by NunoCanha Perspective of a Lighthouse by NunoCanha
*"Aveiro Light, also known as Barra Light, is an active lighthouse in Aveiro, Portugal. At a height of 203 feet (62 m) it is the nineteenth tallest "traditional lighthouse" in the world, as well as the tallest in Portugal. The lighthouse is located on the south side of the entrance to the Aveiro lagoon, in Barra, the seaside neighborhood of Aveiro. The location is on a barrier beach, exposed to Atlantic Ocean storms.
The lighthouse was built between 1885 and 1893, opening in 1893. The original power source was petrol.
The site originally also had a fog signal, originating from a separate building. The fog signal building was swept away in a storm in 1935. Since then, sea walls have been built to protect the lighthouse."
