Santa Catalina Lighthouse

Santa Catalina Lighthouse Interpretation Centre, which is dedicated to navigation, gives us the opportunity to place ourselves in the shoes of sailors who, lost at sea, finally see the beam of the lighthouse, which guides them home safely.


Thanks to the technological resources available at the Santa Catalina Lighthouse, visitors will be able to learn the basic principles of navigation, which take their roots in ancient times. They'll be able to put their newly-acquired knowledge into practice by taking a virtual boat trip from Elantxobe to Lekeitio.

This is the first lighthouse in Euskadi that can be visited.
