Quick Description: According to historical documents, a tower with a beacon light was built by the Swedes in 1621, but the official year of establishment is considered to be 1646. The 1877 lighthouse was severely damaged during World War I (1918), and a temporary acetylene light was placed at the top of the tower. Restoration of the tower was completed in 1937.
