Cap de Creus lighthouse

In the village of Cadaqués, around the Natural Park of Cap de Creus, we find this unique lighthouse. It stands out, among other reasons, for being the lighthouse located furthest east on the Iberian Peninsula.

This building was built in 1853 and is architecturally notable for its eleven-metre-high signal tower. Before the construction of the lighthouse, this point had been occupied by a watchtower which, like so many others scattered along the Costa Brava coastline, served as a lookout point against pirate attacks.

Currently, the lighthouse has an information office for visitors of the Cap de Creus area. Right next to the lighthouse there is also a restaurant where you can enjoy the local gastronomy. There are also some coves just a few metres away, such as Cala Fredosa and Cala Jugadora.
