3D model description

X: 5.90 inch
Y: 3.79 inch
Z: 3.28 inch
Scale 1:200

The design features a hollowed out tower and orifice on the floor that allows for a 9volt battery to be inserted in order to light it with diodes.

The Spanish erected the lighthouse, officially lit on May 2, 1882, on the spot judged, in 1782, by Fray Iñigo Abbad y Lasierra, writer of the first formal history of Puerto Rico, as "the reference point of those who regularly navigate these islands." Inside, facing the main entrance, a corridor leads to an eight-step stairway ascending into the lighthouse tower. An elaborate, richly decorated cast-iron stairway leads to the stone central lantern. The original illuminating apparatus, not changed until after 1898, had an 18-mile range and displayed a fixed white light which every three minutes flashed red. This neo-classic structure appears castle-like with the parapet in the portico's roof and with the tower's rectangular cornice in the middle section.
