The historical lighthouse is one of the main attractions of Cape Point which is located within the Table Mountain National Park. It is quite a steep walk up to the lighthouse which is 249 m above sea level, but the less energetic can take a funicular (The Flying Dutchman Funicular) to get to the lighthouse at a small cost. This prefabricated cast iron tower was erected in 1860 and had a powerful light of 2 000 candlepower that could be seen by ships 67 kilometres out to the sea. Sadly, the lighthouse was ineffective because it was often covered by cloud and mist. After the wreck of the Portuguese liner Lisitania in 1911, it was decided to erect the present lighthouse which is 87m above level, below the historical lighthouse, at Dias Point. (Mar-16)
