They say a lighthouse has been standing at the same location since 1892. The original lighthouse, which was one of the many lighthouses built to help ships navigate the dangerous sea passage along the western coast, was damaged during an earthquake in 1918. Due to the damage caused by the earthquake, the old lighthouse had to be demolished, and the current 70-foot tall cylindrical tower was built in 1922.
