Farol do Cabo Carvoeiro, Portugal

Paulo from Portugal sent me this nice card of the Cabo Carvoeiro lighthouse, on the Westernmost point of the Peniche peninsula. It is one of a group of six lighthouses ordered to be built by decree of the Marquee of Pombal in 1758 when he created the Portuguese Lighthouse Service.

Thank you Paulo!
