Lighthouse Kafkalida

Lighthouse Kafkalida. The lighthouse on the island of Kaikalidas, at the westernmost point of the Peloponnese, in the Ionian Sea, just outside Kyllini to Zakynthos, against the background of Mount Aenos of Kefallonia, was built in 1906 with a tower height of 15 meters and a focal height of 19 meters. According to tradition, the island was connected to the land with a strip of land. On the small island there are Roman tombs and the ruins of an Early Christian temple. Today you go by boat or rock-rock (reefs). It is a remarkable example of a building of historical and technical interest, important for the history of communications and navigation. It is made of masonry and reinforced concrete elements and includes the tower of the lighthouse and the housekeeper's residence. The rocky island of Kaikalida has a height of 5.5 m and is located at a distance of 3 tenths of the nautical mile from the northwest boundary of the extreme Glarzza, with which it joins with shallow rocks and rocks to the surface of the sea.
