Roses Lighthouse, Roses, Spain

It is amazing what one finds when going through old photo albums. Here is a photograph that I took in September 1996 of the lighthouse at Roses, Spain. Roses is located in the Catalonia Region in Northeast Spain near the border with France. The lighthouse was built in 1864 during the reign of Queen Isabella II. The light sits atop the keeper's house and overlooks the Bay of Roses on the Mediterranean Sea. It is 3 km Southeast of Roses. It is also possibly known as Punta de la Bateria or Punta Blancals (per Lighthouse Directory).
