Overview

El Faro de Calella se encuentra situado en la cima de un promontorio de unos 50 metros de altitud. En el lugar dónde ahora está el faro, había una antigua torre de vigilancia y defensa, que vigilaba y protegía las costas del peligro de los ataques de los piratas argelinos. El actual edificio se encuentra a 41°, 36’, 40” de latitud norte y a 8°, 51’, 38” de longitud este del meridiano de Sant Ferran y está clasificado como faro de tercer orden. Una R.O. del 9 de octubre de 1856 inició los trabajos de edificación del faro, que finalmente bajo la dirección del ingeniero Marià Parellada, pudo ser inaugurado el día 15 de diciembre de 1859.

Calella Lighthouse Standing 50 metres tall, set against the landscape of Calella's beachfront, Calella's nineteenth-century lighthouse is a ten-minute walk along the seafront. Visit for a panoramic view of the city and the sea, and make sure you take a look at the museum too....More

Theres a small museum inside the lighthouse and if you walk up the hill opposite theres some ruins. A sight to see between sunbathing and swimming!

The lighthouse is situated about 20 minutes walk from Calella. A little bit steep but nothing most people can manage. The views are really nice. It’s a one hour excursion that you should do while in Calella.

Walked up to the lighthouse, the gate was shut. You can only see one side of it, no signs anywhere. Only perk would be that it looked nice. No history, nothing. Boring & basic. It's a shame because it's very unique.

Again - as with the Towers - signage is terrible - get a map. There was a wedding party there when I arrived so I didn't get to see inside the building- though it looked to have an interesting interior
