Goro e dintorni Torre-Palu

Palù Tower

Palù Tower in Goro, dates back to the 18th century, was built to ensure the Canal Bianco drained to the sea and to prevent the rise of sea water during the high tide. It is called “Tower” because it has been used for defensive purposes too. The first floor of this building has been used for hydraulic operations, while the second one as a dwelling.

Goro e dintorni Lanterna-Vecchia

Old Lantern

The Old Lantern, built in 1864, was the only lighthouse that lit up the sailors’ way. It was built near the mouth, but the progressive river basins moved it more and more far from the sea and it was no more usable for its initial purpose. Now it has been recovered and it is used as a naturalistic observatory.
