Lighthouses, Thematic Issue
Lighthouses are built on promontories, hazardous sea areas and at the entrance of ports to guide ships safely into harbour or to warn them so as to avoid dangerous areas which are in the vicinity.
The lighthouses in Cyprus were built during the last quarter of the 19th century and from an operational point of view have been upgraded so that their light emissions now have a range of seventeen nautical miles.
The Cyprus Ports Authority maintains and ensures their operations at all times.
