At its current site, the original lighthouse was built by the Spaniards in 1836. A much bigger lighthouse was built 61 years later to replace the old one. Unfortunately, the lighthouse was destroyed during World War II. The current lighthouse was constructed on the same site at an elevation of 628 feet above sea level. Being the highest point in the island, visitors who climb up the stairs of the lighthouse can have a breathtaking view of Corregidor, Manila Bay, the South China Sea, and the neighboring provinces of Bataan and Cavite.
