Jul 20, 2008

A pleasant stroll up to the Palamós (Punta del Molí, Punta del Molino) Lighthouse along a purpose built boardwalk. Nice views of the harbour.
****************
1865 - 8 m (26 ft) hexagonal cylindrical masonry tower, with lantern, round watch room, and gallery. The lighthouse was restored in 1975 to repair numerous cracks in the masonry, including many created by nearby bombing during the Spanish Civil War. Located on a sharp promontory south of the harbor of Palamós.
