Photographer's Note

This is the tallest Portuguese lighthouse. Was built in 1893. Round tower painted with red and white horizontal bands; lantern painted red. Standing on a barrier beach, it is exposed to Atlantic storms; a great storm in 1935 swept away the fog signal building. The tower is unusual in having a elevator, installed in 1958, that rises through the middle of the spiral stairway. Located on the south side of the entrance to the Ria de Aveiro in Barra, the seaside neighborhood of Aveiro.
