Visit to the Toro Point Lighthouse, built at the time of the construction of the Canal by the French. Its design is attributed to the French engineer Alexandre Gustave Eiffel. In 1885 Ferdinand De Lesseps recruited the famous engineer to do some work in the Panama Canal. The lighthouse was built in 1893 by the French in "Pointe Le Taureau". Later, when the Americans entered and built a military base (1911) named it Fort Sherman close to Pointe le Taureu and changed the name to Toro Point.
Kõpu lighthouse on the Estonian island Hiiumaa. One of the oldest lighthouses in the world that still are in use (some sources say the third oldest), built in 1531.
