Why locals love it

Historical and cute, a must-see of the quay area. A local landmark who locals adore and never get enough of on their walks on the lovely Constanta waterfront. This tiny lighthouse, barely 8 meters tall, was in use until the 1910s and it is one of the most charming spots in town.

Why you should visit it

Bearing with pride its name in honor of the Genoese merchants who traded in the Black Sea in the 13th century, the lighthouse is actually a little bit more recent, dating from 1860. For an interesting picture, take a closer look and admire the Genoese ship designed as a coat of arms on the old lighthouse.

Special tip

Built by a British company, while this lands were still part of the Turkish Ottoman Empire. Pretty intercultural our little Genoese Lighthouse!
