The Whales Lighthouse
The very first tower built under the rule of Vauban was used from 1682 to 1854 and it is declared Historic Monument.
Between 2005 and 2007 was this tower under reconstruction. The present-day Grand Lighthouse was inaugurated in 1854. With its 57 meters is one of the highest in France. 257 steps to walk up to the top for an extraordinary view on the island and sea!
Museographic activity area about the lighthouses and their history just under the old tower.
