The project was drawn up by the Port of Castellon’s Engineering Director, José Serrano Lloberes, and was built with material from the Borriol quarry. It was first electrically powered in 1922 and was entirely made in Spain, except for its optical system. This octagonal tower, which is made of carved ashlar masonry, was taken out of service in 1971 and, at the beginning of 2000, it was moved stone by stone to the Costa Quay from its original location at the end of the Levante Breakwater, where another lighthouse with greater range was built.
