Lighthouse of Genoa (6/9)

List item

Boasting one of the proudest and most stunning histories of any monument in the entire world, the Lighthouse of Genoa remains not only a key instrument for the port’s naval navigation, but also is a vital feature of the area’s identity. At one time the largest lighthouse in the world and one of the tallest traditional buildings still in operation today, the masonry make up of the building blends into the natural rock it is built on beautifully. With only the city’s coat of arms painted onto the bulk of the building, its traditional beauty and charm keeps it an inviting part of Italy’s pull.
