Formentor Lighthouse

Formentor has also starred for many pictorial artists and main characters for one of the most exemplary poems of Mallorca: “El Pi de Formentor”.

Rising up some 188 metres above sea level, the location of Formentor Lighthouse on the peninsula of the same name earned it the distinction of being the most difficult of the Balearic Island lighthouses to build. The tower stands at a height of 56 metres, and first became operational in 1863.
