July 17

Originally built in 1886 and automated in 1979, the Farolim de Felgueiras was deactivated as a working lighthouse in 2009. But it’s still standing tall against the crashing Atlantic Ocean waves at the mouth of the Douro River at Porto, Portugal. Perhaps, after a stormy day like this one, it’s best to head back into Porto and sip a tiny glass of the city’s wine—port, naturally—so you can dry off and warm up.
