Lo que dice el Arxiduc:

“The rocks along the path leading to the lighthouse are covered with cracks filled with dusty tuff, similar to that found on the south side of the island.

The path is scattered with numerous fragments of grey limestone, which come from the unpolished ashlars that were brought over from Castellón to build the lighthouse.

To the right are the barracks—about 200 metres from the lighthouse—which were constructed to house the workers who built the lighthouse, and which today are used both as housing—for one of the four lighthouse keepers—and for storage.

The building is 30 metres long and 3.5 metres tall at the highest point of the roof, with a façade 3.10 metres tall; its interior width is 5.30 metres...

The Hall of the Virgin—18 metres wide and 20 metres long—is used to store barrels of paraffin, and its floor is covered with cobbled pavement.”

Datos proyecto Nixe III:

Like the lighthouse, the barracks have undergone various reforms. For example, the door you used to be able to sea when climbing up from the port has been walled off. On that wall you can now see some of the ants designed by the well-known park guard, Capi.


The barracks are used today as the primary residence for the Reserve staff. It consists of several rooms, a kitchen and dining room and the communications room.

It has a broad terrace where we met up with the Nature Reserve team. At that time they were carrying out work to fix a part of the terrace and some of the rooms closest to the lighthouse.
