Viirelaid Lighthouse

Viirelaid, which was historically called Paternoster ('Our Father' in Latin), is an islet by the southeastern coast of Muhu. Its area is 81 ha. The distance from Virtsu harbour is 4.1 km and from Kuivastu harbour 3.9 km.
According to the latest data, the first navigation mark (bright red tower) was erected on the Paternoster islet in 1836. The new wooden tower was built in 1857. Since the wooden tower often needed repairs, a new, metal, tower was built. In 1880, the construction of a tower, a lodge, a sauna, and fuel warehouse started. The complex was completed in 1881. 

Currently, the Lighthouse Keeper Holiday Complex is located on Viirelaid.
