Punta Toro Lighthouse

Visit to the Punta Toro Lighthouse, built at the time of the construction of the Canal by the French. Its design is attributed to the French engineer Alexandre Gustave Eiffel. In 1885 Ferdinand De Lesseps recruited the famous engineer to do some work in the Panama Canal. The lighthouse was built in 1893 by the French in "Pointe Le Taureau". Later, when the Americans entered and built a military base (1911) near Pointe le Taureu and named it Fort Sherman and changed the name to Toro Point.
This lighthouse is in Colon, at the Atlantic entrance of the Canal.

Nice pictures, it warms me up a little to see grass and green trees, and all the while I look outside and there is still 2 feet of snow on the ground.
