A Lighthouse of Andalusia

SP 114 El Rompido (old)

The light station was built on the west side of the entrance to the Río Piedras and the harbor of El Rompido. Since 1861, Flecha de El Rompido, the barrier sandspit that protects the lower course of the river, has extended itself 8 km to the east, putting the lighthouse that far to the west of the river's mouth.
