Island sheds light on volcanic past
The Capelinhos Lighthouse was built in 1903 on Faial Island in the Azores. When the nearby volcano erupted in 1957/1958, part of the lighthouse was damaged and buried under volcanic ash. Through this project, an Interpretation Centre has been built in the buried ruins and annexed areas of the old lighthouse. It serves as a reminder of the people affected by the eruption, and also provides visitors with information on the region and its volcanic past through high-tech facilities.
