If you look at a map of Portugal, on the Atlantic Coast north of Lisbon, there's a little bump. On Google Maps, it says there's a town on the bump named Peniche. The bump is actually a peninsula on which Peniche is located. Peniche, unsurprisingly, is a traditional Portuguese fishing village. Peniche is all about the ocean, and seafood.
Given its location, I suspected that there would be a lighthouse nearby. And I was right. The lighthouse is the Cape Carvoeiro lighthouse (or in Portuguese, the Farol do Cabo Carvoeiro).
Here is its own Web site (I recommend the Google translation): Farol do Cabo Carvoeiro
Some details from this site:
- It began operation in 1790.
- The tower is 20.6 meters high.
- In 1923 the third-order Fresnel lens was replaced with a fourth-order Fresnel lens.
- The light ceased operation in 2001. (Wikipedia, though, says it's still active, and the Lighthouse Directory just says it's no longer a major coastal light.)
It's also situated on an impressive bluff, but it was hard to find non-stock pictures of the lighthouse and the bluff. I did, though.
