Cordouan lighthouse is a veritable trademark of Gironde and Charente Maritime

The Cordouan lighthouse has been exalting the beaches around Charente Maritime since 1611.
This wondrous piece of nautical architecture, rising out of the sea at the entrance to the Gironde Estuary, has been resisting the tumultuous waters of the Atlantic and the Gironde for many years.

This magnificent monument was designated a listed building in 1862 and besides being a part of French heritage, has illuminated the coasts of Gironde and Charente Maritime for over 400 years.
