Lighthouse at Cape Akrotiri in Santorini

Furthest away on Santorini's southwest coast (the nearest village is Akrotiri) watches a more than 120 years old lighthouse. It was built in 1892 and renovated in 1925.

The lighthouse was not in use during World War II, and probably stood there and looked sad until it started to light up life again in 1945. The lighthouse is fully automated since 1988.

The lighthouse is perhaps not an attraction that is jaw-dropping, but it is almost impossible to not be amazed by the location. The view from the lighthouse is probably the most beautiful on the island. Moreover, it is a extraordinarily quiet and peaceful place, and of course it is worth a visit.

Those who do not have a fear of heights can go along the crater.
