Hr Porer (phare Porer) Premantura

Hr Porer (phare Porer) Premantura



Built on an island 80 m wide, 2.5 km from the coast, the lighthouse Porer is located at the extreme southern tip of Istria Western Cape, Cape Kamenjak.
Built in 1833, his lantern rises to 35m. He is still active. Well and automated, it is alternately guarded by two guards. These ensure the maintenance, repaint all surfaces regularly exposed to winds, salt and moisture. There are also constant radio contact with the coast. It also oversees the operation of another lighthouse at sea, the smaller a few miles.
With electricity, the lighthouse has however limited capacity of running water. It depends on the frequency of rain and a well from which access is inside the main building.

Erigé sur une île large de 80 m, à 2,5 km de la côte, le phare de Porer est situé à l'extrême pointe sud ouest du cap d'Istrie, le cap Kamenjak.
Construit en 1833, sa lanterne culmine à 35m. Il est toujours en activité. Bien qu'automatisé, il est gardé alternativement par deux gardiens. Ceux-ci assurent l'entretien, repeignent régulièrement toutes les surfaces exposées aux vents, au sel et à l'humidité. Ils sont également en liaison radio permanente avec la côte. Il supervisent aussi le fonctionnement d'un autre phare en mer, plus petit situé à quelques miles.

Doté d'électricité, le phare n'a en revanche qu'une capacité limitée en eau courante. Elle dépend de la fréquence des pluies et d'un puits dont l'accès se fait à l'intérieur du bâtiment principal.
