    The Phare d'Eckmühl is a lighthouse on the Pointe de Saint -Pierre in Penmarc'h in the French department of Finistère. Inaugurated on October 17, 1897, Phare d'Eckmühl, named after Maréchal Louis Nicolas Davout, Duke of Auerstädt, Prince of Eckmühl, is one of the tallest lighthouses in Europe, 60 meters high. The tower secures one of the most dangerous coasts of France due to many cliffs. The walls of the tower are made of Kersanton granite, and the inner wall of the stairwell is covered with opaline glass. (Source: Wikipedia)
