Active; focal plane 49 m (161 ft); four white flashes every 24 s. 16 m (52 ft) stone tower with lantern and gallery, attached to one corner of a massive stone castle. The upper portion of the tower is now painted white, although it appears unpainted in Solabre’s photos; lantern dome is gray metallic. 1-story keeper’s house built atop the castle. Fog siren (Morse code “C” (long-short-long-short) every 60 s.) Jesús Romero’s photo is at right, Trabas has a great photo, Wikimedia has several photos, Huelse has a historic postcard view, and Google has an indistinct satellite view. The lighthouse has been renovated several times; the present lantern is at least the third. The fog siren was added in 1953. The castle and the adjacent church of Santa Maria de la Asunción are among the oldest and best known Gothic buildings of the province; they are believed to date from the 13th century. The peninsula on which they stand provides natural shelter for a small harbor used by fishermen for many centuries. Located atop a vertical cliff at the point of the peninsula in Castro-Urdiales. Site open, tower closed. ARLHS SPA-066; ES-00970; Admiralty D1536; NGA 1964. – From the Lighthosue Directory
