An interesting little video of a lighthouse given by the Italian people of Argentina to Rome. Probably not a navigational aid, but cool still.

That's such a beautiful "lighthouse"! (Can't really be a lighthouse if it's landlocked, can it? :wink: )

We have a real lighthouse here that's located 15 miles from the sea http://www.lighthousing.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=9540

But that one used to be near water... does that count? And it's not active either...

Sure it does....On the Great Lakes we have some like that.....

Cape Vincent and Two Rivers come to mind, as Lighthouses that have been moved inland.

No, we Dutch are some kind of Aliens, but we do understand it makes no sense to activate a light 15 miles inland :lol:
I presume the Roman one is not active either, at least not as an AtoN. Talking about inland lighthouses, you should see this one as well: http://www.lighthousing.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10199&p=78499&hilit=cologne#p78499

No inland lighthouses in America. Or at least no inland lighthouses that the government would call lighthouses.
