Suurupi lighthouses

The upper Suurupi lighthouse is open from May 2017!
The cylinder-shaped lighthouse made from limestone was built in 1760 to make it possible for ships to find shelter from storms between Naissaar Island and Suurupi. The lighthouse is surrounded by a walled campus from the 1890s.

The lighthouses and campuses are under state protection as cultural monuments and together, they show the way to the ports in Tallinn.

The bottom Suurupi lighthouse is currently closed for visitors and can only be observed from the outside.
The gable-roofed tetrahedral wooden lighthouse, shaped like the frustum of a pyramid, was completed in 1859. The lighthouse is included in the UNESCO World Heritage list.
