Description

Situated on the highest point of the Isla del Medio, it was built between 1851 and 1853 and stands 178 metres above sea level. The lighthouse signals the entrance to the Ría de Vigo estuary, and is surrounded by the wild natural beauty of what is Galicia's only National Park - the Parque Nacional de las Islas Atlánticas. In order to visit it you will need to walk up a zigzagging road, a challenge in itself to get up there.
