Punta La Entallada Lighthouse

Pointing to Africa

On the outskirts of the village named Las Playitas, which belongs to the town of Tuineje, you'll find the Punta La Entallada or Punta Lantailla Lighthouse. It is positioned to look out towards Africa, and it's one of the island's most spectacular places, but it's not possible to visit the building's interior, unfortunately. Nevertheless, it's worth a visit to observe its curious horizontal shape in grey and red from the wooden corridor: the building's crafted architecture displays curious and originally red complex stone and masonry work throughout all of its arches. On the building's exterior, at the end of the walk, you'll find the most spectacular viewpoint on the island. It's incredible! This is the nearest point to the African continent at approximately 62 miles, and it's a completely wild and rural place that will keep you in touch with the typical nature of the area.
