Lighthouse in Genoa

Also known as Lanterna, The Lighthouse in Genoa is the second tallest structure of its kind. It overlooks the port providing navigation for ships, particularly at night. The Lanterna is a symbol for the port of Genoa. Built in 1128 (some say 1161) it stands 249 feet high. It is made of unpainted stone.
