El Faro

The elegant white silhouette of the lighthouse looks like the setting of so many stories from the high seas. Its mission was to bring the sailors coming from Spain, France and England home safely. From 1907 onwards, it has been visible on the edge of Isla Aguada. Built in a French neoclassical style, it consists of two floors and one 60-foot high tower. Looking at it up close, you can appreciate its original columns and balustrades, also of French style.  

Specialized research into lighthouses indicate that Isla Aguada formed part of a series of seven lighthouses distributed along the coasts of Tamaulipas, Veracruz, Campeche and Yucatán. 

Now, as a Community Cultural Center, with a museum and library, it continues to guide those who wish to know more about what has happened over the course of Isla Aguada’s existence.
