The landscape regeneration of the Sardina’s Lighthouse, in Gáldar, has been converted into an attractive point where to take wonderful photographs.
Ideal to contemplate the littoral of the north coast and the sunsets with Tenerife in the back.
The Sardina del Norte’s Lighthouse, in Gran Canaria, and its environment create an ambience of the end and the beginning of the world.
The old lighthouse, the Faldar’s shoreline, on the northwest of Gran Canaria, projects its first flash over the Atlantic quadrant on the 15th of february of 1891. The current structure lifted in the same location and which substituted the old lighthouse in 1986, took the responsibility of throwing light to the north shoreline where the waves crash slowly, tired of their long trip to the coast.
The primeval sea light burned out the necessity of saving the oceanic transit, a direct consequence of the growing industries related to the transport of cochineal, sugar, bananas, tomatoes and potatoes.
