1845 (modernized in 1955). Active; focal plane 67 m (220 ft); two white flashes every 12 s. 23 m (75 ft) square cylindrical masonry tower with lantern, round watch room, and two galleries, rising from a 2-story masonry keeper's house.Oh yeah, you have to see where it is! The map.
This handsome lighthouse stands on a steep headland on a promontory connected to the mainland by a narrow isthmus. It marks the northern tip of Sardinia and the western entrance to the Strait of Bonifacio.

"2006. Active; focal plane 12 m (39 ft); red flash every 6 s. 17 m (56 ft) steel sculpture; the tower is curved gracefully forming a loop at the top. Entire structure is red."As I noted, there aren't many pictures of it. In fact, as far as I can find, there are two.
"Built in 1890, the lighthouse consists of a one-story dwelling, supported by pilings, with a square tower protruding through the center of its hipped roof. Atop the tower is mounted an octagonal lantern room that originally protected a rare third-and-a-half-order Fresnel lens, which produced a white light interrupted every twenty seconds by a red flash at a focal plane of forty-four feet. The dwelling was painted white, its shutters green, and the lantern room black. Roughly seventy feet away, a nearly identical dwelling, minus the tower, was built for the assistant keeper, and wooden storage tanks were provided to hold a supply of water for the keepers. Keeper Francis McNulty activated the lighthouse on December 31, 1890, just in time to welcome the new year."It's also supposed to be haunted.
