A Lighthouse of Crete

CR 6 Elafonisos (Kriti)
latitude 35° 16' 7" N

The light was built after the Austrian liner Imperatrice wrecked on nearby reefs in 1907 or 1908 (both dates appear). The original lighthouse was a tall stone tower. The new light is a steel tower built on a wall. Located on an island just off the southwestern tip of Crete. ARLHS # CRE-006
