This lighthouse was built in 1971 on the PortCastelló breakwater (now the Ceramic Quay) to extend the range of the previous lighthouse, which had been in the port since 1917. It is a reinforced concrete tower, with a diameter of three metres. In 2021, a decision was made to demolish the lighthouse and build a similar one at the NE end of the port, next to the East Breakwater.
