  • An icon of La Paloma, the Lighthouse is very picturesque. Unfortunately we could not go up, we didn't know the times in which it was possible to do so. The place is well kept.

  • Has a sight spectacular of all the costa... In 15 minutes, these high... The cost of the ticket is super economic... Keep in mind that very large stature people is complicated... Since the stairs are very narrow and the place where you have to pass to reach the tip of the Lighthouse is super narrow.
