This lighthouse is situated above ancient Heraion, on the Western tip of Cape Melagavi in the Gulf of Corinth, built in 1897 and is still in operation today illuminating the ships that sail in the Corinthian Gulf.
One of the oldest stone lighthouses in Greece, it is only 20 minutes from Loutraki and was an important archaeological site that situates the dominant Temple of Hera. The lighthouse illuminates the ships that sail in the Corinthian Gulf.
You can get to the lighthouse from the Heraion car-park by walking up a small pathway to the right of the concrete ramp that leads down to the sanctuary of Heraion. There are some spectacular views from the lighthouse of the Corinthian Gulf, the rugged coastline and unusual rock formations in the sea.
