Last quote by Ana Goy Diz

Lighthouses in the Mediterranean were located at the entrance of ports. They were constructed at sea level. In the Atlantic they had a different function, which was to signal the dangers of the area. They were located so as to show ships how to stay away from the coastline and avoid dangerous rocks and cliffs. That is why they were built on top of high cliffs. The Tower of Hercules was built 57 metres above sea level. That, added to the 47 metres of the lighthouse itself, means that the light is over 100 metres above sea level.
