Description
The light shines from atop a 22 foot round tower with a domed lantern room gallery and a 56 foot focal plane. This light was relocated to this position in 1987 but the original location of this light seems to be unknown. Today the tower is a memorial to Carlos Condell, a hero of the Battle of Iquique during the War of the Pacific.

There is a good photo of the lighthouse on the Chilean Maritime Signaling Service website (see link below).

My only photo of this light is a very distant view in the morning fog. It stands across the Valpariso harbor from where the Splendor was moored.
