Topic: Lighthouse Documentary
Touring in and around Buenos Aires,docks and building, as well as the River Plate's Martin Garcia Island and the South Atlantic sea coast for a 12 wonderful days of adventure and discovery....
Argentina's lighthouses are a wonderful trademark to this broad and beautiful land. It shouldn't be an other way for a "discovered" territory. It was one of the first constructions to be done when arriving to main land, in order to guide the upcoming travelers, these were rough and precarious, made out of wood and sometimes just a fire on the coast. As those initial ports began to transform into bigger and more important cities, as technology in terms of illumination evolved, these precarious lighthouses began to be transformed and converted into architectural icons, impressive lighthouses, that enlighten the shores of the "new" continent. Serving as important beacons to all sort of ships sailing the waters off the Atlantic coast.
The 19th century was the time in which most of the southern lighthouses were built, expressing through means of their lines and concepts aesthetic trends prevalent in good old Europe, and sometimes new and native trends that blended with some classic solid feature. Most of those lighthouses have remained in use to our days. Outstanding style and technological marks very well appreciated as social and cultural monuments all over the world. The thick glass prisms of the Fresnel lenses invented in 1822 focused from a whale oil or kerosene wick lantern, allowed the lights to penetrate only about 20 miles out to sea, but are still considered a marvel of engineering and art.
These fantastic buildings are a wonderful door through which we can discover a society and it's cultural maritime heritage, touring around the Atlantic seacoast as well as through the River Plate's coast for 12 wonderful days of adventure
