The lighthouse is a place where is born and after a moment, dying light and this is repeated again and again.
The lighthouse for the sailor — guiding star and a symbol of hope for a speedy return home.
Tasaciones community hundreds of years to withstand the onslaught of hurricanes and ferocious storms, and the light showing the ships the way along the coastline to the secure Parking lot.
Each lighthouse has a unique history. The most ancient of the existing stands on the coast of Spain, near the modern city of La Coruna. It was built by Romans around 100 BC and is called the Tower of Hercules. The altitude of the Patriarch — 41 m.
In addition to these lighthouses in the old days there were false, designed especially to lure vessels on the run aground or on reefs, and then to Rob. With the purpose of profit extraction with merchant ships, the peasants of many European coastal villages lit bonfires on the rocks or even allowed to swim near a dangerous shore the corpse of a horse attached to a top of the lantern. Confused sailors often, especially in inclement weather, came across these tweaks.
Today most lighthouses are computerized. The romantic figure of the caretaker, which in the rainy night, climbing the tower at the roaring of the sea, almost gone. Even the lighthouses are gradually giving way to modern navigation technologies.
And all the lighthouses are unique architectural and engineering features. We have selected the most spectacular.
