Faro Cabo Santa Maria, La Paloma

Take in the views from the top of Faro Cabo Santa Maria, a whitewashed lighthouse that dominates the coastline. The rounded form of the structure and its continued use are a testament to the quality of its design and engineering. Finished and first lit in 1874, the lighthouse is a National Historic Landmark. Head up the spiral staircase to gain extensive views of the coastline and the town below. Find out how to plan La Paloma trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

  • Visited here....nothing really spectacular. Just an ordinary lighthouse in comprison to the one in Cabo Polonio and Colonia de Sacramento.  more »
  • Beautiful view. And very nice building. Entrance fee 30 pesos. Totally worth it. The last staircase is very steep so it's not for people with fear of heights.
  • I've been visiting this place since i was a kid. Only 8yo+ allowed. The way up is as easy as it gets for a lighthouse. If you're claustrophobic the initial steps may bother you, but after those, the stairs are very spacious. Up there in the balcony there's a great 360 view, and super windy.
