Description

Tavolara Island had a strategic importance in 1861. Merchant Navy built with the cooperation of the prisoners on the island at the time, at Spalmatore di Fuori, a lighthouse of 2 floors.

The lighthouse was built on the mountain falls steeply to the sea and it was therefore necessary to develop a narrow winding road to reach it, which partially altered the natural landscape of the island.

The lighthouse was active until 1920, when it was replaced by the advanced Timone.

L'île de Tavolara a eu une grande importance stratégique en 1861. La Marine Marchande construisit, avec la coopération des détenus présents sur l'île à l'époque, à Spalmatore di Fuori, un phare de 2 étages.

Le phare fut construit sur la montagne qui tombe à pic sur la mer et il fut alors nécessaire d'aménager une route tortueuse et étroite pour pouvoir l'atteindre, ce qui modifiait partiellement le paysage naturel de l'île.

Le phare fut actif jusqu'en 1920, date à laquelle il fut remplacé par celui de pointe Timone.

Isola di Tavolara aveva una importanza strategica nel 1861. Marina Mercantile a costruito con la collaborazione dei prigionieri sull'isola al momento, a Spalmatore di Fuori, un faro di 2 piani.


Il faro è stato costruito sul monte scende ripidamente verso il mare ed è stato quindi necessario sviluppare una strada stretta e tortuosa per raggiungerla, che ha parzialmente modificato il paesaggio naturale dell'isola.

Il faro è stato attivo fino al 1920, quando fu sostituito quello dal Timone.
