Formentor Lighthouse, 188 feet above sea level, was the lighthouse of the Balearic Islands more complicated to build due to its location on the peninsula of Formentor. With a tower height of 56 meters. The lighthouse became operational in1863 and a power line was installed in 1962, although the storms forced the subsequent installation of generators. Currently works with solar energy.
Formentor is a narrow peninsula 12 miles long and about 3 wide located on the northern tip of Mallorca in the municipality of Pollensa. It is one of the most visited and iconic spots in Mallorca, thanks to the beauty of a landscape that combines the sea and the mountains.
In 1928 the Argentine citizen Adan Diehl bought land and built there Formentor, a luxurious residence, which became the emblematic Hotel Formentor. The hotel was opened in 1929 and soon became a legendary place for elite tourism in Europe, due to the importance of international characters who frequent it.
The lush, dense forest of pines and oaks of the peninsula of Formentor reaches the sea. The branches of the trees almost touch the water. A unique place that you can not lose. Upon returning we recommend that you stop at the Lighthouse of Formentor.
A sunset from those heights must form part of the album of your best memories.
