Dance Information

The Lighthouse of Alexandria, sometimes called the Pharos of Alexandria, was a lighthouse built by the Ptolemaic Kingdom between 280 and 247 BC. It was the seventh of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

The Lighthouse was one of the tallest man-made structures in the world for many centuries, standing between 120 and 137 m (394 and 449 ft) tall. The last of its stones were removed in 1480.
