Description
Argentina's Servicio Hidrografia de Naval has an excellent website that lists the individual lighthouses that dot Argentina's shores.

Faro Punta Ninfas or the Punta Ninfas lighthouse was originally a skeletal tower that was replaced by a 36 foot tall yellow and black plastic cylindrical light in 1971. The light can be seen for a distance of 11 nautical miles.
