The lighthouse was built in 1856 by the Italian Navy. During the last war it was machine-gunned by American planes and, later on, it functioned as the Lighthouse keeper's residence until the late 1980s. It has lit the way for seamen for over 150 years, slicing the darkness like a sword with its welcoming beam of light, it hasnow become a luxury guesthouse without losing its original function. The Lighthouse is open all months of the year, and it’ s really amazing in summer and even in winter with the fantastic stormy weather of the location.
