The Armenistis Lighthouse

Il a été construit en 1891 à l’emplacement du phare du cap d’Armenistis, à une distance d’environ 5 km au nord ouest de la Chora. Sa construction fut décidée après le naufrage du bateau à vapeur anglais VOLTA et la mort de 11 membres d’équipage en 1887 sur la côte nord de Mykonos. La hauteur de la tour est de 19 m et la hauteur de sa focale de 184 m. Le mécanisme du phare d’origine est de marque SAUTER LEMONIER et il fonctionnait au sommet du phare jusqu’en 1983. Depuis lors, une de ses parties est conservée dans le jardin du Musée Maritime de la Mer Égée, dans le quartier de Tria Pigadia de la Chora.
