L is for lighthouse


This is the beautiful Santa Marta's lighthouse, whose first historical references date back to 1693. It is currently part of The Santa Marta Lighthouse Museum, located in the bay of Cascais, near Lisbon, the first museum dedicated to Portuguese coastal lighthouses.

Another favorite picture of mine, from my archives.
