The Balearic Port Authority (APB) opened the call for tender for the construction of the Molinar de Levante marina on Monday, which will end on 14 December.
The Formentera Department of Culture reports that low-season hours will henceforth be observed at El Far de la Mola. The lighthouse will be open for visits 10.00am to 2.00pm, Tuesday to Saturday, with weekly closures Sundays and Mondays.
A monument to civil engineering, La Mola’s lighthouse was designed by Emili Pou Bonet and completed in 1861. Today the building houses a space which is devoted to culture and to showcasing the island’s maritime heritage. It is divided into two clearly distinct exhibition spaces. The permanent exhibition explores its main focus —the sea— from a variety of angles: the marine environment, natural resources management, navigation and light signals. A second space is dedicated to temporary art exhibits.
General admission is €4.50, though residents of the Balearic Islands, youth under 18 and unemployed individuals enter free (pensioners and students get in at a reduced rate of €2.50).
