Correct Answer: The oldest lighthouse in the world
Info: The Tower of Hercules is considered the oldest working lighthouse in the world. The 180-foot lighthouse was built by ancient Romans during the 1st century and renovated in 1791. It is the second-tallest lighthouse in Spain, after the Faro de Chipiona. It is in the town of A Coruña, in northwest Spain, and looks out over the Bay of Biscay, where it opens into the Atlantic Ocean. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009. Although the Pharos of Alexandria was built 300-400 years earlier, it was largely destroyed by several earthquakes over the centuries. Until the 20th century, it was known as the Farum Brigantium. The structure stands 55 meters (180 ft) tall and overlooks the North Atlantic coast of Spain. There is a sculpture garden featuring works by Pablo Serrano and Francisco Leiro. (Ref)
