  • It is a nice view towards the sea, an icon to Monte hermoso, has a small nautical Museum that would be more beautiful if a guided tour, visiting should be more days.

  • Sadly, the abandonment of the lighthouse being one of the highest in Latin America. Schedules are limited only in the morning. It is a good activity for a rainy day
