  • You reach the lighthouse as tour after visiting the hippy market, the Lighthouse is located on a promontory between the highest of the island and overlooking the sea. Views to die for. ...

  • The headlights have a charm all their own, to be alone and have the important task of being seen but without exhibitionism. I'm not a cathedral, a monument, a building designed to show the power of client or to symbolize the wealth of a city. Yet to be seen, even more than all the other facilities. But keep an order, cleanliness and a seriousness really all their own. Blocks, overlooking the sea, are almost always placed in places and also the La Mola Lighthouse naturalistically is not far behind. Close to the East the main road that bisects the island, alerting visitors that besides him there is only water, water, water, water. Then you pull up, you can admire, a tireless worker and heedless of those who observe it, although this is his role. Illuminates the sea, lights the way, draws curious eyes and walks away ships that never should observe it closely (for obvious reasons). You can't go in without devoting time to his headlights, cathedrals in the desert but express the intelligence of man. Yes, because if you think about it, the Lighthouse is one of those inventions so simple and yet so useful, that create an intimate celebration of human thinking, that thinking really turned to the next and to be useful. The lighthouse has the ability to express all this, and the La Mola Lighthouse has the ability to represent her role in a romantic and, paradoxically, discreet. Recommend to visit both day and night. Enjoy!

  • Worth the piece of road that takes you to the lighthouse and remember the film "Sex and Lucia". At the end it is a place with stunning views to take some good pictures.

  • Worth a look. Nice gift shop beside it. The lighthouse is not the most attractive I've seen. Also, it's in operation so you aren't allowed near it.
  • Amazing place... Views, sounds and air are so special there. I recommend to visit Formentera just for visiting this Lighthouse
  • Great view of the cliffs and the ocean before turning your scooter around to the beach.
  • Great overview of the island on the way to Far de la Mola, recommend to go with a car or scooter because the way up is quite tough
  • Nice spot and good cliffs, worth to get a ride.
