The Senetosa lighthouse, take a journey on the wild coast
Inextricably linked to Mediterranean Sea, the lamp of the Senetosa lighthouse has guided sailors since 1892. Depending on where he observes it from, a ship’s captain will either be assured of his course by the white light of the lantern, or be warned when the light shows red.
