They knew how to be watchers of the sea for a time. Today they have almost two centuries of history as references for navigators. They are located at strategic points to be viewed from the ocean and alert maritime adventurers against the dangers of the coast. Although today they were replaced by satellite navigation, the mystic lighthouses of Patagonia continue to bewitch the south of our country .
There are several of these imposing constructions that fill Patagonia with magic, but today we will tell you about three of them:
The rionegrins boast this mystic lighthouse located in the coastal tourist corridor, right where the river with the same name flows. Located 32 kilometers from Viedma, in the place “La Boca” is the oldest continental lighthouse that still works in our country . It is a special place to tour by bike and get to know the colony of barranqueros parrots . You can also observe majestic peregrine falcons and blackberry eagles.
This 22 metre high lighthouse takes its name from the iconic yellow tuft penguin . This species of bird inhabits very few places, being Puerto Deseado (Santa Cruz) one of the privileged ones. The lighthouse is 20 kilometres in a straight line from the city of Puerto Deseado. Although there is no pier from where to get there, there are tourist companies that make excursions to this mystical area of Patagonia. The tour to get to the island and get to know the lighthouse is an unparalleled adventure that you can't miss.
Known in our country as the southernmost lighthouse on the continent , it is located 133 kilometers from Río Gallegos. This is one of the most famous places in Patagonia for being the place where in 1584 the Spanish sailor Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa erected the first Spanish population in Patagonia . Its construction dates from 1904, and since 2003 it became a museum, an ideal place to learn more about the history of this area. The lighthouse is within the Cabo Vírgenes Nature Reserve which houses a colony of Magellan penguins close to 250 thousand birds.
Our Patagonia is undoubtedly a mystical and impressive place, where these three man-built wonders bring magic to the wonderful natural environment.
