Situated near the coast, on the charming rock of Sant’Eufemia, the Lighthouse of Vieste is for the town and its inhabitants a symbol and an important element of the landscape.
The Lighthouse was built by the Italian Navy in 1867 to take on the role of monitoring and information retrieval.
At its summit, the big lantern is clearly visible; at night it lights up the sea with a flashing light, an essential warning for all vessels in transit in this part of the Adriatic sea.
Today, the figure of the guardian, once the only inhabitant of the lighthouse, has been replaced by technological devices that enable the Command of the Zona Fari of the Navy Area to monitor the Lighthouse even at a distance.
Like the castle, Pizzomunno and the typical Trabucchi, the Lighthouse of Vieste is one of the attractions that tourists cannot exclude from their itinerary.
Enjoying the view of the sea, when illuminated by the great lantern of the lighthouse, is a true privilege: the scent of saltiness, the sound of waves, the warmth of the maternal lantern will take you on a journey made up of inner feelings, emotions, ideas, memories and future projects.
Thanks to its Lighthouse, as well, Vieste leaves an indelible trace in the heart of every tourist.
