Capo Sandalo Lighthouse Wikipedia
The original stone tower was built in 1864. It is an active aid to marine and aeronautical navigation. The focal plane is 134 m (440 ft) tall, perched on top of a cliff, and gives four white flashes every 20 seconds visible from 24 nautical miles (44 km). The tower itself is 30 m (98 ft) with lantern and gallery, attached to the front of a 2-story stone keeper's house. To this day, the lighthouse remains a beautiful structure of unpainted stone, with a gray metallic lantern dome. The lighthouse is now automated, and a keeper lived on premises until recently. Chart references: ARLHS SAR-018; Admiralty E1090; NGA 8432. French charts 7332. The lighthouse is connected by a well paved road to the main town of Carloforte on San Pietro Island.
