Ilha Grande Things to Do: 36 reviews and 49 photos


This beautiful lighthouse ( I love to take pictures of lighthouses!! ),is one of the oldest in Brazil.
It keeps working as its original french mechanism,with cristal lens ( 3 pairs of lens ) and all mechanical!
The lighthouse has a fix rotation of 3 RPM,what.with the unique kind of lens,create the identity of the lighthouse!
how do I know all this?
When visiting the lighthouse,the guy who works there can be your guide!
Just look for him,identify yourself and how you would love to see the lighthouse from inside,and he'll be glad to give you a whole lecture about it!
You can get there using a track,but it's a little hard,easier taking a boat!
