The lighthouse of Cap Ferrat
Located at the southern end of the Cap Ferrat peninsula, the eponymous lighthouse signals the entrance to Villefranche harbor. Listed as a Historical Monument in September 2012, it was built in 1952 according to the plans of a civil engineer on a site successively occupied by a 16th-century fire tower and the original Villafranca lighthouse. The lighthouse of Cap Ferrat takes the form of a pyramidal stone tower with cut sides. One hundred and eleven feet (34 m) high, it rises 233 feet (71 m) above the sea and has a range of 24 nautical miles. The structure, which emits a rotating flash every three seconds, was electrified in 1954 and then automated.
