Lighthouses – guardians of the Adriatic
Guardians of the Adriatic
In the Adriatic archipelago, comprised by 1,244 islands, tiny islands and cliffs, 48 lighthouses were built at the beginning of the 19th century. Alongside them, on locations in the midst of the sea, houses were built for the keepers and their families to live in.
Nowadays some of the Adriatic lighthouses have been renovated, and 12 have been turned into accommodation for tourists fleeing from the overcrowded beaches and searching for a more intimate atmosphere behind the walls of lighthouse buildings. To be in solitude for a couple of days far away from the bustle is the dream of almost any business person, and a stay in the lighthouse suites offers an adventure on Robinsonian tourism next to the azure of the Adriatic.
