Lighthouses in Gran Canaria
Gran Canaria now has seven functioning lighthouses, three of which are historic.
Fun facts, Maspalomas Lighthouse, rising to a height of 56 m, is the tallest historic lighthouse in the Canary Islands. La Isleta Lighthouse is at the highest point above sea level, at 249 m.
The other lighthouses in Gran Canaria, more modern constructions, are at Punta de Melenara (built in 1992), Castillete (built in 1996), Punta de La Aldea, and Punta de Sardina (built in 1985).
