Faro de Punta Nati, Menorca
Spain

En la costa norte de la Ciutadella de Menorca, ciudad situada en la zona oeste de la isla, se producían naufragios y accidentes debido a las corrientes marinas y a la influencia de los fuertes vientos de la zona de tramontana. El impulso decisivo para la construcción del faro fue el naufragio del barco de vapor francés Général Chanzy el 9 de febrero del año 1910 del cual sólo hubo un superviviente y 156 personas muertas.

El ingeniero Mauro Serret se encargó de diseñar el edificio. Las obras empezaron el 5 de julio del 1912 y se inauguró el 1 de septiembre del año posterior.

La instalación luminosa presentaba una apariencia de grupos de 1 y 3 parpadeos blancos que se veían a una distancia de 26 millas. El edificio está formado por dos cuerpos rectangulares independientes de una sola planta, construidos con sillares con cara de piedra vista. La torre se eleva del suelo a una altura de 11,5 metros.

A pocos metros del faro hay un soplete donde cuando hay temporales de primero cuadrante, las olas entran a las cavidades del soplete salen disparadas en forma de grandes columnas de agua que llegan a alturas considerables y se precipitan con gran fuerza sobre la linterna del faro.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
