Characteristics

Description

This lighthouse is built from 1830 and guides the navigators since February 1st, 1834. Located on the tip of St. Martin, 75 meters above sea level, the lighthouse has a height of 47 meters. The current Fresnel lenses and catadioptric rings were installed in 1904. They scanned the night with two 10-second flashes for a visual range of 26 nautical miles.
It has the shape of a cylindrical shaft placed on a base of two levels, originally octagonal and then enlarged in 1950 for the purposes of electrification. It is automated in 1980 and has been registered as a historic monument since November 6, 2009.
