Culture and history info

The walk to the lighthouse can be very rewarding to take in some of the best views of Albir and its coast line. Cars are not allowed access to the lighthouse so a walk is the only option if you want to take in the views. There is a car park at the beginning of the footpath to which some people leave their car and walk the rest of the way.

The walk to the lighthouse from anchor sculpture on the sea front of Albir at a gentle pace should take you around an hour. The initial start to the walk up to the car park has a fair incline and considered by most to be the worst. After this a more sedate walk lies ahead. Take your camera and enjoy the views.
