Lighthouse in Maspalomas | Gran Canaria | Spain


The lighthouses of the Canary Islands have long played an important role in keeping ships off of their rocky shores; if you look at a map of North Africa, you'll see why.  Probably the most important of these is the Maspalomas Lighthouse, which sits at the southern end of Gran Canaria.  Opened in 1890 and automated since 1973, the tower stands 56 meters (just under 200 ft.) tall; it's the second tallest in the chain.  Check out this important maritime landmark from above in this drone video from DroneEyePerspective.
