Laidunina Lighthouse


Laidunina Lighthouse (Estonian: Laidunina tuletorn) is a lighthouse located in Kahtla Peninsula, Laimjala Parish, on the island of Saaremaa, in Estonia.[2] The lighthouse was built in 1907, built out of brick with a gallery and a one-story hexagonal stone base. The lantern was removed, with the lighthouse being deactivated in 1924.[3] The lighting equipment was transferred to Kübassaare Lighthouse. The lighthouse was recognised as cultural monument of Estonia in 2005.[4]
