Llobregat Lighthouse (Faro del Llobregat), Barcelona, Spain

The Llobregat Lighthouse is located at the north side of the mouth of the River Llobregat. It is south of the port of Barcelona. The light dates from 1852. The base is a round two story keeper's house with a three part tower above. The lower part of the tower is square and then the middle section is octagonal with a gallery above. The tower is 102' from the ground. It is the oldest lighthouse in Catalonia. When the Montjuic Lighthouse was built, this light was ordered demolished, however protests saved it. It remains active. Photos taken in October 2016.
