I Wish I Had Taken Those Pictures

Published: 2012.07.12 - 23:43:53   /  web@renciclopedia.icrt.cu  /  Ana Elizabeth Rodríguez
  

Morro CastleSome times we do not have a camera at hand to take pictures of situations and places which have caught our eye.

And in some cases, we wish we had been there when a certain picture was taken. That’s how I feel about these pictures I have compiled on the occasion of the 167th anniversary of the construction of the lighthouse at the Morro Castle, located at the entrance of Havana’s Bay.

The original was made of limestone and used wood as fuel. It had to be rebuilt with stronger materials.

The one standing now was inaugurated on June 21, 1845. It has a focal height of 44 metres (144 ft) and displays two white flashes every 15 seconds. Its light reaches 18 nautical miles off shore to safely guide boats and planes. It has a 170-step spiral staircase leading to the top from where one gets an incredible view of Old Havana, the colonial part of the city. (Daynelis Rodríguez Peña)
