At 56 meters tall, it is one of the tallest lighthouses in the world and the first metallic lighthouse constructed in France. The island is uninhabited, and the lighthouse unmanned except during the daytime when visitors are allowed access. These days it is solar powered but during its life it has been powered by windpump, kerosene and originally colza oil.
