Neat little walk around the lighthouse with signs (both English and Spanish) giving history and plants names, however it was in much better shape when we were here last year. Needs a lot of weeding and gardening.

This is an old lighthouse with history, and places where you can read about it. There are also places where you can sit, I recommend going there as well for the sunset, which is beautiful.

A very calm and gentle wooden walkway curves round the base of the lighthouse ("faro") with long benches if you just want to sit and think and look at distant coastal and fishing port views. Nothing really special, perhaps ... but exactly right if you (and someone with you) feels quiet, gentle and contemplative ... and loving.

A little walk around here was very informative with notice boards giving lots of information. And great views of Gibralter.

Situated at the town side of the port, the lighthouse is small and uninteresting. Don't go to any effort to see it.
