Tower of Hercules Lighthouse, Spain

Dating back to Roman times, the Tower of Hercules Lighthouse is likely to have been built during the reign of Trajan in AD 98-117 and it’s the only Roman-era lighthouse still in use today. The exceptionally well-preserved structure consists of a four-sided tower topped with two smaller octagonal towers, which were added by architect Eustaquio Giannini in the 18th century. Presiding over the entrance of the historic city of A Coruña in northwestern Spain, the statuesque lighthouse’s beauty is only heightened by the surrounding craggy cliffs.
