Lighthouses

The sea navigation aid system of the APFSC incorporates a total of 9 lighthouses and 146 signals distributed along the coast from the Ria of Ares to the Ria of Ribadeo, bordering on the neighbouring province of Asturias. The efficient working order of these installations depends on good maintenance and monitoring.
