Ponta do Altar Lighthouse, Portimao, Portugal

This schoolhouse style light sits on a high bluff overlooking the east side of the entrance to the harbour of Portimao, Portugal. It is actually on the Ferragudo side of the harbour. The lighthouse dates to 1893 and is now dwarfed by a large communications tower built directly to the east of the lighthouse. These somewhat distant photos taken in April 2013.
