How does a person from Bilbao end up in Maó?
1,030 people visited the Maritime Signals exhibition at Portopí Lighthouse in 2020. Despite the health alert situation, which has forced the lighthouse to close for four months (from March to July), a significant number of visits to it and to the exhibition have been registered.
It is one of the oldest operating lighthouses in the world, the second oldest in Spain, behind the Tower of Hercules in La Coruña and the third in the world after the Genova Lantern Lighthouse.
The Portopí Lighthouse is located in a restricted access area, so you must book in advance. There are free visits from Wednesdays to Fridays from 10:00 to 15:00 and 16:00 to 19:00 and on Saturdays, from 10:00 to 15:00, using this link or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org / 650 438 205.
