A Lighthouse of Sicily

IT 211 Torre Avalos (Forte d'Avalos)
latitude 37° 12' 42.5" N
longitude 15° 13' 27.6" E

The Torre Avalos now stands inside a huge breakwater that encloses a large part of the northern end of the Golfo di Augusta; the construction of this breakwater made the lighthouse unnecessary. This modern light is probably on a mast. There is a wooden walkway from the breakwater to the old fort, but it does not appear to be open to the public. Located about 800 m south of the southern tip of Augusta. Accessible only by boat. ARLHS # ITA-305
