"Columbus Lighthouse" Top 5 Page for this destination Faro a Colón - Columbus Lighthouse Tip by alfredop

 
 

Another site not to be missed is the Faro a Colón (Columbus Lighthouse) an impressive structure in the shape of a cross which was constructed to mark the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus' arrival in the Americas in 1492. It houses his remains in an impressive tomb and features numerous exhibits. After exploring it by day, it is exciting to view the Lighthouse at night from the Colonial City, when the powerful lights are reflected into the sky in the shape of a cross.The lighthouse is located in the Mirador del Este Park.
