This famous Lighthouse is laying on top of high cliffes next to the Black Sea.
A stone next to the Lighthouse gate tell you the history in turkish and english (photo and text in other tip).
It was built in 1858-1859 and searching for more info at the net I found out it has been in use for 138 years. Last shining lights must have been in 1997.
When we visited a sunday afternoon the gate was closed so I'm not sure if your allowed inside or not. But it's a great visit walking around the Lighthose, looking out over the Black Sea and maybe have a tea (or coffe) in the nice garden there.
Address: Very central in Sile
Directions: You can't miss seeing it while down in Sile harbour :)
A sign in the street pointing where to walk between local houses. We had no problems finding parking place in the street. Also a sign in the street to parking place in the neighbourhood.
