  • It is a beautiful place, it has an interesting Museum. The lighthouse go up a staircase that goes in snail-shaped. It is important to know what days and times is open, since it is distant from the city and sometimes is closed to the public

  • Very nice place to go and the beach in front of the Lighthouse is beautiful! do not miss it. The only downside is that we could not climb.
