Right on the walking path minutes from the historical centre, follow the pathway from the street. Open area with great sea views and light house history.

Except that it is blue and white rather than the red and white I would expect in my vision of a perfect lighthouse - this is lovely. In fact I think I like it the better because of the blue - next to an impossibly...More
