Le Grand Phare Ile d'Yeu
original lighthouse was constructed in 1829 and was 29 metres high, but
the light produced by the oil fired lights was insufficient to permit
good visibility, so in 1895 it was replaced by electric light.
In 1951 a new lighthouse was constructed with a height of 41 metres in all being 56 metres above sea level.
It is open to the public during the season when a spectacular panoramic
view of the whole island and surrounding seas can be seen.
