The Tourlitis is a very picturesque lighthouse in the port of Chora in Andros island (Cyclades islands). It is the only lighthouse in Europe that stands on a rock in the sea (Aegean sea) ! The lighthouse as a metallic structure was constructed in 1887 but was first operated the 1st of January 1897. It was destroyed during the 2nd world war in 1943 by German bombardments. Its reconstruction was commissioned by A. and M. Goulandris family (in memory of their Daughter) and eventually starts to illuminate the route of the seamen’s ships in 1994.The Tourlitis was the first automatic lighthouse in Greece. So it has no onsite keeper in it! Its height is 7m, its focal height of 36m and the luminescence of 11 nautical miles. In 2009, a postal stamp of the Tourlitis was created (among others Greek lighthouses).
