Faros Sidero, Kerkyra, Corfu, Greece
The Sidero Lighthouse (Faros Sidero) sits high atop the citadel of the Old Fort at Corfu Town (Kerkyra) on the island of Corfu, Greece. The British constructed the light on the grounds of the Old Fort in 1828. During my visit, I noted that the maintenance of the lighthouse and the grounds of the Old Fort could stand some improvement as you will note by the graffiti on the lighthouse in one of the photos. Photos were taken in September 2011.
Someone asked me, "What is it you love about lighthouses?'
I guess it is because seeking out lighthouses as a hobby combines so many things that I enjoy: travel, the sea, being outdoors, photography and history.
So, having a lighthouse blog, allows me to share my love of lighthouses with others. Each post will be about a different lighthouse that I have visited and have photographed over the years. I hope you enjoy. I have also started a bird blog for the birds I have photographed (August 1, 2013).
