I love this film for the pot and filming location - and was a reason coming to Formentera. We find place where "Lucia" falling to the hole - it is here. If you "falling" inside you could see a nice scenery around and it is very interesting to go inside the islands rock. There are some sculptures (stones on stones)... More

This 19 m high lighthouse was built in 1972 and is situated 78 m above sea level past the road to nowhere on the most southern point of the Balearic Islands in Formentera. New lighting equipment was installed in 1995 and groups of 2 flashes every 15 seconds w/ a range of > 33 km. All three lighthouses are fully... More

Quite a narrow road out so careful if you are on a bike or driving. Don't miss the climb down the hole to view the sea through the cave

The lighthouse, at the very furthest point south has attracted much attention as it was in a film . Nice enough but La Mola at other end of island is as nice and much easier to get to . View Es cap de barbaria lighthouse by boat as you travel too/from the island is easiest option

The drive to this lighthouse is very beautiful. You will feel like you are in the movie "Lucia y El Sexo." To the right of the lighthouse you will see some wooden pillars in a circle. There is a ladder to go down a hole in the middle of the pillars. There is a cave, and you can walk out... More

Well it is a lighthouse... It isn't a particularly interesting one but I understand it was in a movie, hence it's popularity. I wasn't blown away but it's fun to have a cruise around on the bikes getting there.

Definatley worth visiting at least 45 mins before sunset to take in the beautiful views, get some good photos of the light house & watch the sun in all its beautiful nature set behind mainland Spain! Must do activity if in Formentera! 5 star

After a long steady climb on the road (don't underestimate the distance by bike) you finally have a short downhill to the lighthouse, which is very well maintained and literally in the middle of nowhere. We saw it in glorious sunshine, but I can see this as a good trip to do on a cloudier/cooler day - not sure kids... More

Best view of the sunset but pay attention to the street to reach it. It's thin and with cars is not so safe. If with motorbike look after the cars. The view is amazing, the sunset is great and the sea is amazing
