Columbus Lighthouse

A giant that impresses both by day and by night.

This now iconic landmark was conceived as early as the beginning of the 20th century, but it wasn’t until 1992 that it finally became a reality, inaugurated for the 500th anniversary of Hispaniola's discovery by the Christopher Columbus expedition. Besides honouring Columbus (including, it is claimed, the explorer's mortal remains), this gigantic structure also comemmorates fraternity among nations and offers various historical displays. After visiting it by day, this place also merits a return visit at night when its illumination creates a jawdropping effect.
