We don't have many working lighthouses here. And usually lighthouses are not reachable.
Believe it or not I didn't know anything about this lighthouse.
And when I read in this blog about a trip there I talked hubby into it. I told him the first sunny Sunday we find we will go there! And it was last Sunday!
I thought at first that it was far away but no it isn't.
So ladies and gentlemen this is day trip to the lighthouse at Megalo Emvolo.
First you go through Perea and Agia Triada and before going to Mihaniona you turn right towards Angelohori (Angels' village).
And you reach this beautiful view.
We ate at Barbandonis. We were impressed by their service. They welcomed Barca and put a table outside for us to sit with her!And since it was sunny and warm it was really good to sit outside!
In 1883-1885 the Germans built a fortress in front of it.
In 1948 it was repaired and was working again.
In 1963 it became an electrical lighthouse but stopped working 30 years ago.
It was repaired again in 2010 but is not working.
I don't know if one can visit it.
When we entered the area which has open doors and a military base nearby the lighthouse was closed. Still it was gorgeous.
