Old Lighthouse in Cabo San Pablo, Tierra del Fuego

⠀ Old Lighthouse in Cabo San Pablo, Tierra del Fuego
⠀ The day we visited the Desdemona Shipwreck you can find a few photos ago in my feed, we first did a small hike up the hill of Cabo San Pablo to witness an amazing view of the Atlantic Ocean.
⠀
After seeing a Condor flying over us and stumbling upon a Guanaco that was roaming the area we reached the top, where you can find this Old Lighthouse.
⠀
After having a couple of snacks while our guides from @tierraturismo and @canal_fun shared some cool information about the area, we took a little bit of time to enjoy the view of the Desdemona from the top and to play around this old lighthouse. ⠀
It was built around 1940, but just a couple of years after that an earthquake left it in the position you can see in the photo. A new one was built with the proper corrections to avoid this would happen again, but this one remained and has become a well-known landmark. ⠀ Soon after, though, it started raining a little bit and we maded our way back to those cool Land Rovers we rode around the Island. Maybe Nature sensed our hunger, since it rained for only 20 minutes after, and stopped as soon as we reached the lunch spot close to the ship.
