Alexandroupolis is the easternmost city of the Greek mainland, located about 15 km from the Turkish border. The city is relatively new; it was developed by the Ottoman Empire in the late 19th century and originally known as Dedeagatch. This handsome lighthouse is located right on the city-s waterfront boulevard at the base of the main quay, making it one of the most accessible of all Greek lighthouses. According to Savas, it was transferred to the Hellenic Maritime Museum in 1986 and is open to the public. ARLHS # GRE-005
