From the window of my Teleferique cabin
One of the oldest and most visited attraction in Lebanon. The tour starts in the Maameltein area near Beirut City and takes you in 9 minutes up to the Harissa mountain where our Lady of Lebanon stands high above the Mediterranean bay of Jounieh. The slope can go up to 80% !! revealing slowly spectacular views over the surrounding landscape. #Telefrique #Lebanon
258 steps, no lift : Le Phare du Cap Ferret
50 meters high and visible from a range of about 50 kilometers. From the top, the view of the Basin is impregnable: oyster parks, Île aux Oiseaux, the Dune Of the Pilat, the ocean #phareducapferret
Lighthouses were the first way for ships to identify hazardous areas and ports. Today, ships are equiped with GPS systems. Thus,there are only few maritime lighthouses that are still in service in the world, Including the one in Cap Ferret, at the entrance of the Bassin d'Arcachon, firing a red glow every five seconds !
