Info. Farolim de Felgueiras, a lighthouse in Porto, Portugal
The Farolim de Felgueiras (Lighthouse of Felgueiras) you see here has survived relentless waves for around 135 years. It was built in 1886 and warned ships approaching Porto, Portugal's second-largest city, until it was deactivated in 2009. Even though it's no longer operational, it's still a well-known local landmark. It offers visitors a beautiful view from its perch looking over the mouth of the Douro river where it flows into the Atlantic.
