A Lighthouse of France

FR 2 Leughenaer (Feu Postérieur)

Built in 1548 as part of the defense of Dunkirk. Charles V ordered her to be built on the foundations of the old vestiges dating back to the fortified cities of Vauban. The tower was raised on a few occasions. A light was installed in 1825. Dunkirk, Gravelines and Calais were all fortified in the Vauban-style. ARLHS # FRA-752
