TRADITIONAL GREEK LIGHTHOUSES

LIGHTHOUSE AGIOS NIKOLAOS KEA

This lighthouse was manufactured in 1831 from French Company of Lighthouses. The altitude of tower is 8 metres and the height of focal plane is 32 metres.

The lightouse located in the end of harbour of Vurkario in Kea Isl. (Tzia) on a stone white building seeing the Aegean. Behind the lighthouse is found the small church of Saint Nikolaos. Is one from the two first lighthouses of Greek network.

Lighthouse and Church of Saint Nicolas watching over the port of Korissia
Located just across the port of Korissia it marks the opening to the Aegean sea. The lighthouse is built at the ruins of the temple of Poseidon. Today it looks like a white fortress of stone, glued to the little church of Saint Nicolas. Built in 1831 by The French Company of Lighthouses is one of the two oldest lighthouses in the Greek network. This is the first that has ever been lit in the Cyclades and the second in Greece. It belongs to the traditional Greek lighthouses, the square type, with a height of 8 meters and focal height 32 meters. I walk in front of the ruins of the industrial community of Kokka, the warehouses and the dispersed housing facilities, installed here at the end of the 19th century by the English owners to supply the steamboats with coal, on their way to the busy ports of the time, like Syros or Chios. I leave behind ‘the narrow passage of Lambros Katsonis’ and take the path to the lighthouse. The peninsula lies like a dormant camel with two hunches, at top of the one, still erect, are two adjacent squares out of rock; they stand stubborn and resistant against the weather and the human neglect. Their position ensures supervision inside and outside of the harbor; there used to sit the staff assigned to signal for the arrival of the boats (simatoreio) and to navigate the boats safely (pilotagio). Every time I walk this path or reach the lighthouse the experience is different. Like the movies that feature films in lighthouses: romantic, comedy, dramatic, horror or thriller.
