The Europa lighthouse was built between 1838 and 1841 by the then Governor Sir Alexander Woodfood. It remains in service and became fully automated in 1994. The lighthouse stands at a height of 162ft and the light from the lighthouse can be seen some 30 miles away. The lighthouse keepers lodge was built alongside but has because of automation, the building has now become just a normal residence.
