About
Visit the ancient fortifications, the nineteenth-century gate of Genova da Ponente and the Lanterna, symbol of the city since 1128. Enjoy the view of the city from the panoramic terrace of the lighthouse which, after the tower of Hercules in La Coruna, is the oldest still operating in the world. At 77 meters high, it is the tallest lighthouse in the Mediterranean and the second in Europe. The monument dates back to at least 1128, according to the most widespread date by historians, almost 9 centuries of history that make her the second oldest lighthouse in the world still functioning. The reconstruction of 1543 only partially affected the upper part of the tower. At that time it was on the walls and leads to the west of the city while today, inside the fortifications, there is a museum on the history of the Lantern and which illustrates how a lighthouse works. In 2001 a pedestrian walkway was built to make the Lantern more accessible by connecting the Ferry Terminal to the lighthouse with a section that runs along Via Milano.

Closed except weekend???
That was disappointing. Walked all that way along the port and the gate was locked.

It can’t be that hard to keep the attraction open 7 days a week. It’s a lighthouse for goodness sake. Oh well we did get close, see the photos. And, did get to see the Porto.

Hard to reach, not much to see
Open only a few hours a week, one would imagine it would be must-see place. Well, it is hardly worth the long walk

Actual Lanterna has been built in 1543 after the previous one had been destroyed in 1514. It is built on a rock 40
