Faro de Chipiona, Chipiona, Cádiz Province, Andalusia Community

Chipiona Lighthouse, also known as Punta del Perro Lighthouse is an active lighthouse in Chipiona, in the province of Cádiz, Spain. At a height of 205 feet (62 m) it is the seventeenth tallest "traditional lighthouse" in the world, as well as the tallest in Spain.

A previous lighthouse was present at the same site from the Roman period, and this former lighthouse gave Chipiona its name. This superb lighthouse was, according to Strabo comparable with the mythical Lighthouse of Alexandria. It was ordered to be built in 140BC by the Roman proconsul Quintus Servilius Caepio in an attempt to finally overcome the problems of the Salmedina reef at the mouth of the then river Betis, now the Guadalquivir. Its Latin name Turris Caepionis (Caepio's Tower), is traditionally held to be the origin of the name Chipiona.

The project to build a modern lighthouse on the site was first developed in 1862 by Jaime Font. He placed the first stone on the 30th April 1863 and it was lit for the first time in 1867.

Far de l’Illa de Tabarca, Tabarca Island, Santa Pola, Alacant/Alicante Province, Valencia Community

The lighthouse is located in Tabarca Island (Alicante, Spain) to advise of the situation of the island itself in the numerous rocky islets and reefs that surround it.
It opened in 1854, and it is a large building that served as lighthouse keepers school. It consists of a lower body cubic volume of two floors for housing. Prismatic tower over him holding the lighting mechanism, today stands dismantled. In 1971 was built beside a new reinforced concrete lighthouse, which, however, was demolished in 1998 to recover the original lighthouse.
