Cullera lighthouse

Cullera lighthouse was built in 1858 on the Punta de Faro, on the eastern tip of Cabo de Cullera. It is between Playa del Racó and Playa del Dosser. It is one of seven of the Valencian coast that continues to remain inhabited and one of the leading lighthouses of Valencia.

The lighthouse is located in an extraordinary and charming setting, at the edge of cliffs, surrounded by beautiful beaches. It is a circular building with a slightly conical tower sixteen meters high made of white ashlar, surmounted by an iron railing, rising on a further round building. It is worth getting here but can only be visited abroad and unfortunately, the Faro de Cullera cannot be visited inside.
