Bugio's lighthouse - In the middle of Tagus river, Lisbon, Portugal
AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :
Here's a terrific aerial view of one of the landmarks of the Greater Lisbon region of Portugal: it's a lighthouse atop a small island at the mouth of the Tagus River called Bugio's Lighthouse. It's situated within the Forte de São Lourenço do Bugio, a 16th century fortress which was built at the mouth of the river to protect Lisbon from the ever-present threat of a seaborne invasion. The original lighthouse was destroyed in the cataclysmic 1755 earthquake but its replacement continues to be operational.
