WORLD'S LARGEST LIGHTHOUSE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What is the world's largest lighthouse?
Lighthouses are always a thing of beauty and wonder for
many people. But just how wonderful must the largest lighthouse in the world be?
Well, to see it for yourself, you’ll have to go all the way to Japan. Yokohama,
Japan, in fact. This lighthouse is still standing and is known as the Yokohama
Marine Tower. It stands 101 meters, or 331 feet tall and according to the World
Lighthouse Society, it is the largest lighthouse in the world.
However, the Yokohama Marine Tower isn’t the
largest lighthouse in history. That title belongs to the Lighthouse of
Alexandria, which was in Pharos and stood at 140 meters, or 459 feet high. This
Lighthouse was built in the third century, but was destroyed in the 14th century
after the Arab conquest.
