Lighthouse of Cordouan

to discover

Visit to the
lighthouse
of Cordouan

Royan

 

 

 

The Lighthouse of La Coubre

With its slender, white and red silhouette, it is 60 metres high and is one of the most powerful lighthouses in France with a range of more than 50 km.

The present lighthouse of La Coubre dates back from 1905.

It was built 2 km away from the sea and set back 1.5 km from the previous lighthouse, which collapsed due to erosion.

 

 

Today, it is only a few hundred metres away from the shore.

A magnificent panorama

Having climbed the 300 steps up the spiral staircase which adjoins the internal wall, covered with blue opaline, one is rewarded by a magnificent panorama on the peninsula of Arvert, the Côte Sauvage, the island of Oléron and the peninsula of Bonne Anse
