Topic: Lighthouse Tour
Punta Medanos Lighthouse Argentina
The Punta Medanos lighthouse is located in the province of Buenos Aires coastline between Mar de Ajó and Pinamar. The coast in this area is bathed by the Atlantic Ocean that has blended up a bit with the Rio de la Plata. The imponent lighthouse marks the end of the Cabo de San Antonio, where there had been countless shipwrecks before the building of the light tower. This cape side area was first discovered by Magallanes in 1520, during one of his many explorative expeditions through the Argentinean coast down to Tierra del Fuego. Ever since there have been countless ghosts stories around each and every shipwreck. The wide coast, the beautiful sand mountains, the everlasting green countryside have made of this place a fairy tale scenario. Email: Bob Frassinetti. Art Dealer & Journalist. This is a very special and cherished construction. It was built in France and transported and settled in Argentina between 1892-93. The main body of the building is a cylinder. One can access the light room walking up the 298 steps. The lighthouse is located 36°53’ south 56°40’48’’ W, six miles north from Punta Médanos and 500 meters from the high tide line. Though the walk is long, the view is rewarding for it opens up in front of us a painting like view of an endless deep blue ocean and a crystal sky.
