This lighthouse, rising on cliffs formed by hard waves in the north of Spain, leads the mariners for 200 years and reminds to the people their stories. This lighthouse accompanying the Atlantic Ocean is also an important point of visit for tourists. The height and strong waves seen from down of cliff, starting from the lighthouse shore, should remind people of the smallness of life that many people have attempted suicide from this point in the past.
In order to prevent this, the regional administration has built a stone column with “Pausa” written on it as seen from the point. “Pausa” suggests that someone who has decided to commit suicide should stop and look at his/her life again, away from an order or judgment.
