On the top of a 200 metres high cliff you will find a magical place that matches the sky with the sea. We are talking about the mesmerising Faro de la Entallada in Fuerteventura.

Building of Faro de la Entallada

Punta Lantailla, also known as Faro de La Entallada, is a striking construction designed by the famous architect Carlos Alcón, who started it in 1958.

This building has three enormous towers and the tallest one works as a guide to signal the eastern coasts of the island, which helps boats and commercial planes orientate themselves. Back in the days, it also guided military planes in the Ifni War.
