    The Lighthouse of Itapuã is situated in the District of the same name in Viamão, this location is delimited the border of Guaíba Lake with the Laguna dos Patos. Today the Lighthouse is still used, but access is prohibited, is a fantastic building and your state of conservation is good. The best view of the lighthouse I believe is by boat.
