This lighthouse is in the form of a tapered tower which stands 46.5 metres above sea-level. It is one of the highest Mediterranean lighthouses. It is a stone construction, widened at the base and with a corbel at the top.
In 1934, the smooth masonry was painted with six alternating horizontal black and white stripes. It was restored between 1947 and 1950, due to damage suffered in the Second World War. In 1972, it received a wind turbine and was automated.
In 1967, it was used as the set for a scene in Robert Dhéry's film 'Le Petit Baigneur (The Little Bather) with Louis de Funès.
The lighthouse is now powered by the national electricity network and is no longer manned.
