VISITING CABRERA’S ENSIOLA LIGHTHOUSE

Visiting the Cabrera archipelago means, among many other things, visiting the impressive Ensiola lighthouse. In 1864 Emili Pou produced the Cabrera lighthouse project. Its construction ended in 1868, but it was not until 1870 when the optical elements arrived, and it started working.

The Cabrera lighthouse has a surface of 360 m2 and is built with stone from Santanyì. Both the type of building and the distribution of the interior space are like the Formentor’s, in the Northwest of the island and also designed by Emili Pou.

It was refurbished in 1967 painted red and white – its current colours – and the lantern was changed. In 1971 the lighthouse was automated, and the lighthouse keepers were no longer needed.

To visit the lighthouse of Cabrera, we recommend choosing our Premium Tour excursion, which will enable to discover not only the flora and fauna of the island but also historical and cultural landmarks such as the castle, the Museum of Cabrera, the archaeological sites, the monument to the French or the Botanic Garden.

Remember to check our promotions for residents on the islands, retired people, families, people with disabilities and online purchases. They apply to all excursions. They are not accumulative.
