Completed in 1896, this magnificent edifice designed by Guillermo Brockman, has survived the fury of time. In fact, Faro de Punta de Malabrigo is one of the very few Spanish era lighthouses that are still in good shape. Aside from the light which was replaced with a modern, solar powered one, everything from its 17m white cylindrical brick tower to its single-story keeper's house has remained intact and continuously serve the vessels in the sea up to this date.

I was able to visit Malabrigo Lighthouse last August 26, 2012 when I came to the town of Lobo for a solo adventure. It's quite far from the main town, requiring about 15 minutes tricycle ride (P150 one way).
