We first visited Faro, twenty years ago, when we could still climb it. It is so impressive, even better in your own boat sailing past it

I love this light house. It is so peaceful and grand! I have yet to climb it. This is one of my favourite spots in Chipiona.

Though historically important, it's not worth much of a visit - unless you really like lighthouses. Coming from North Carolina, we have seen plenty.
