Shining a light on old memories in Punta Albir

PUNTA ALBIR: the lighthouse is easier to reach these days.

APRIL 30 was the 150th anniversary of the lighthouse at Punta Albir. The history of the lighthouse, built in 1853 and still vital to shipping in the area, is told in a new documentary.

Forty people recall its past in a documentary which begins and ends with an interview with Antonio Hurtado. He was the last lighthouse keeper to live on the premises with his family. His daughter Loly, who also appears in the documentary, shares her memories of her early childhood there.

The documentary – in Spanish, with some interviews in Valenciano – can be seen on YouTube:
