Six of Europe’s most fascinating lighthouses

For centuries lighthouses have protects sailors and their ships and provided them a safe passage through shallow waters. Here are several of Europe’s most beautiful and interesting lighthouses.
Maidens Tower Lighthouse, IstanbulMaiden’s Tower – Also known as Leander’s Tower this astonishing lighthouse sits on a tiny islet at the southern entrance of the Bosphorus Channel. It was built during the 12th century and is currently one of Istanbul’s most recognisable landmarks. The lighthouse has an octagonal shape and is topped with a cupola. It is approximately 23 metres tall.
Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse – Located on the coast of the North Sea, Rubjerg Knude is arguably Denmark’s most distinguishable lighthouse. It was established during the late years of the 19th century and lit for the first time on December 27th, 1900. Sadly, it was closed in 1968 and converted into a touristic attraction due to the area’s bad weather conditions. In 2002, it was completely abandoned and experts expect that it will fall into the sea in the early years of 2020. So, make sure that you visit it before it is gone forever.

It was built during the 12th century and automated during the first half of the 20th century. It sits on the hill of San Benigno and is one of the oldest still functioning lighthouses on the planet. It has a main range of 46 kilometres and a reserve range of 33 kilometres. The building is 76 metres tall and is regarded as the second tallest masonry lighthouse in the world.
