Discover the Cordouan lighthouse online

TAKE a virtual tour around the Cordouan lighthouse, found at the mouth of the Gironde estuary, without having to cross the stormy seas.

Le phare de Cordouan website lets you scroll around the lighthouse, first lit in 1611, from both inside and out and in a click or two you can learn much about its history.

The lighthouse is still in active service and measures 68m high.
