Photographer's Note

The Cabo Vilan Lighthouse (1896), located in an environment of great landscape and environmental value, is built in stonework at an altitude of 75 m and has an octagonal floor plan, some 25 m high, linked by a tunnel to a square-plan building with an interior patio. A two-storey building with a simple design that houses different rooms.

The origin of this lighthouse, the first to be electric in Spain, is due to the fact that it came to replace a previous lighthouse (1854), located nearby, and that worked on steam.
It was after the sinking of the Serpent, in 1890, that the need for the new lighthouse gained strength and became a reality.
Currently, it is one of the tourist resources with the greatest projection of the Camari馻s city council and houses a museum and an exhibition hall that changes throughout the year.

El Faro de Cabo Vilan (1896), situado en un entorno de gran valor paisaj韘tico y medioambiental, est construido en canter韆 a 75 m de altitud y, presenta una planta octogonal, de unos 25 m de altura, unida, por un t鷑el, a una construcci髇 de planta cuadrada con un patio interior. Un edificio de dos plantas y dise駉 simple que alberga diferentes dependencias.

El origen de este faro, el primero en ser el閏trico de Espa馻, se debe a que vino a sustituir a un faro anterior (1854), emplazado en las cercan韆s, y que funcionaba a vapor.
Fue a partir del hundimiento del Serpent, en el a駉 1890, cuando la necesidad del nuevo faro cobr fuerza y se convirti en realidad.
En la actualidad, es uno de los recursos tur韘ticos con mayor proyecci髇 del ayuntamiento de Camari馻s y alberga un museo y una sala de exposiciones que a lo largo del a駉 va mudando.
