Cap d’Artrutx Lighthouse
Near Ciutadella, around a 20 minute drive towards the south, stands this lighthouse in classic nautical style with a black and white striped tower. Where the lighthouse-keeper once lived there is now a restaurant, which is a great spot for a drink or a meal while you watch a spectacular sunset. On a clear day, you can see the town of Capdepera, on the island of Mallorca. Definitely a great place to visit and even better for taking photos.
Punta Nati Lighthouse
We’re going to the north-west part of the island, just six kilometres from Ciutadella. The landscape is completely different here. The north wind dries out the terrain, giving it an arid, even lunar appearance. At the end of a narrow road flanked by low stone walls which seem to stretch on for ever, the lighthouse rises serenely. It was built after the tragic wreck of the steamship General Chanzy in 1910. Many people choose this place to see the sunset and try to spot the island of Mallorca, or wait until night to see the starry skies far from the lights of any town. If you like hiking, this is a point on the historic Camí de Cavalls footpath which circles the island.
