Lights and history 60 feet above the ground, adorned by a picture-perfect setting.
Not just any lighthouse.
In front is the immense Atlantic Ocean, and behind it is the majestic Cuban capital. This is what you'll be able to see if you climb all 60 feet to the top of the Faro del Castillo de los Tres Reyes Magos del Morro. There you will also see the lights that guide ships as they approach the Caribbean island. In fact the combination of lights it possesses and the order in which they flash helps mariners know the distance and position they should keep upon their approach with precision. The Morro Lighthouse has been there since 1848, built by the French long after the castle was built between the 16th and 17th centuries. It's one of the symbols of the city. But your visit doesn't end here, you can also check out the beautiful surroundings and the details found in the interior of this fortress.
