Located at a strategic spot, it protects vessels from sandbars. These sandbars form a wide dark green stone coast that, when covered by tides, becomes extremely dangerous for sailors navigating the untamed South Atlantic Ocean.
The lighthouse has life of its own and the spirit of pioneers of the Argentine Army remains inside, the spirit of those who first drifted along these lands filled with passion and adventure.
At night, the lighthouse is the star. Its light beam goes through the mist giving a glimpse of magic and guiding vessels in the dark since 1905.
