The Armenistis Lighthouse

Se construyó en 1891 en lugar del Faro de Armenistis, a unos 5 km. noroeste de Chora. Su construcción se decidió después del hundimiento del barco a vapor inglés VOLTA y donde murieron 11 miembros de la tripulación en el año 1887 en la costa norte de la isla. La altura de su torre es de 19m. y la altura central de 184 m. El mecanismo del faro fue construido por SAUTER Lemonier y la parte superior del faro funcionó hasta el año 1983. Desde entonces, una parte se mantiene en el jardín del Museo Marítimo del Egeo, en Tria Pigadia de Chora.
