The lightouse of Ponta do Albernaz, is located in the Ponta Delgada Village, in Flores island, Azores. It's a white cylindrical tower with a red top.
Inaugurated in 1925, the lighthouse is the one more in the west of the Azores (and Europe).
It was erected in the far northwest of the island on a high cliff, which faces the direction from which came most of the maritime traffic that demanded those waters.
On his elevated position bordering the west coast, it allows the signal to be seen from the coast of Corvo island and throughout thenorthwest coast of Flores island.
From the lighthouse area you can admire the Maria Vaz islet. This islet is named for one of the original settlers of Flores. It has a pyramidal shape.
Also from this place you can admire the Monchique islet.
