Info. Tŵr Mawr lighthouse
Built in the 19th century, Tŵr Mawr lighthouse ('great tower' in Welsh) stands on Llanddwyn Island at the southern tip of Anglesey, a much bigger island just off the north-west coast of Wales. The lighthouse is inspired by the design of the area's windmills. About 11 metres tall, it stopped functioning in the 1970s, when it was replaced by a smaller tower nearby.
