Take in the views from the top of Faro de La Paloma, a whitewashed lighthouse that dominates the coastline. The rounded form of the structure and its continued use are a testament to the quality of its design and engineering. Finished and first lit in 1874, the lighthouse is a National Historic Landmark. Head up the spiral staircase to gain extensive views of the coastline and the town below.

  • The lighthouse was built in the Cape Santa Maria in 1874; has 29 meters high; the focus is 42 meters and a range of 22 miles. Its construction was due to the shores are populated sand banks and non-visible rock formations that caused large number of shipwrecks. You ascend to the top by a 143-step spiral staircase. In 1976 the lighthouse was declared a historical monument Nacional.Y can not amount to the same children under 10 years.

  • 一個比較普通的燈塔,這裡的海灘比較細,風景也不算特別,不過地點十分接近市中心。除了這燈塔,這裡沒有其他景點了。 
  • 142 steps and a magnificent view of the spa are waiting them for less than a dollar. Access to over 8 years. They close at noon. A not to be missed.
