The Lighthouse at the Port of Cassis

 

This Cassis Lighthouse is located at the entrance of the fishing port of the French commune of Cassis... Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur ; French Riviera.

 

Cassis is a pretty coastal town in Provence surrounded by vineyards and majestic cliffs, guarded by the ruins of a medieval castle, and nestled around a picture-perfect fishing port. This town was an ancient fishing port, and today the remaining small fishing port shares the harbour with yachts and tourists boats. The village that you see today was rebuilt on the old ruins in the eighteenth century, thus resulting in a more regular city layout.
