The Barra Lighthouse is the highest lighthouse in Portugal. It is located on the beach of Barra, parish of Gafanha da Nazaré, municipality of Ílhavo, district of Aveiro. With a height of 62 metres, it is currently the second largest in the Iberian Peninsula, and it is included in the 26 largest in the world, rising 66 metres above sea level. Built in the 19th century, more precisely between the years 1885 and 1893, with a spiral (snail-like) staircase consisting of 288 steps made of stone, it provides, for those who "venture" to climb to its summit balcony, a magnificent and dazzling view of the surrounding área.
