Farol de Ponta da Piedade, Lagos, Portugal

This lighthouse sits on a beautiful point of land approximately 2.5 km south of the town of Lagos, Portugal in the Barlavento region of the Algarve. Ponta da Piedade (Point of Piety) is a popular tourist stop with beautiful sandstone cliffs and sandstone towers being much photographed. The lighthouse itself is active dates to 1913. Prior to that time a chapel sat at the location. Photos were taken in April 2013.

  2. Neal, I was in Amsterdam last year for a week. I am a well know author of lighthouse books. Look up Sharma Krauskopf on Amazon. I am currently involved in making a feature length motion picture about lighthouse keepers. See I am trying to expand interest internationally and I thought you might be able to help me. We have a small Kickstarter campaign to get started and we would love to have you involved in our team. See
