A Lighthouse of Andalusia

SP 146 Adra (1899)

The first Adra light, a 43 ft hexagonal wooden tower, was built near the former mouth of the Río Adra; it was quickly threatened by erosion and collapsed during a storm in 1896. The light was then moved to a safer location about 3 km to the west. The lighthouse was repaired after being damaged during the Spanish Civil War in the 1930s. ARLHS # SPA-334
