The Lighthouse

Immerse yourself in the timeless charm of the Capo Rasocolmo Lighthouse, a testament to the history that envelops the Tyrrhenian coast of Sicily.
The majestic tower of the lighthouse, erected in the sixteenth century, encapsulates the millennia-old legends and historical events that have shaped the region. Here, in 36 B.C., the defeat of Sesto Pompeo's fleet by Agrippa took place, an event that left an indelible mark on the history of this place. Artifacts found in the surrounding waters, including the recent discovery of a rostrum from a Roman ship, preserved in excellent condition and exhibited at the Municipality of Messina, testify to the rich history and vibrant vitality of this ancient region.
In 1932, the navy transformed the ancient tower into a lighthouse, giving it a new vital function for the safety of vessels navigating the waters of the Tyrrhenian coast. Its fascinating history intertwines with millennia-old legends and historical events that have shaped the region. Surrounded by breathtaking scenery, the lighthouse offers the opportunity to immerse yourself in pristine nature and enjoy spectacular views.
