The Lighthouse at Alexandria Written by Lin Donn Illustrated by Phillip Martin
The Lighthouse at Alexandria Nearly all the Greeks agreed that the Lighthouse should be included as one of the wonders of the world. It was built around 290 BCE on the Island of Pharos in the harbor of Alexandria, Egypt.
The Lighthouse at Alexandria It was a working lighthouse that helped ships find their way safely into harbor. It was also a tourist attraction.
The Lighthouse at Alexandria In ancient times, visitors could buy food at the observation platform on the first level. Anyone who wished to do could climb nearly to the top. There were not many places in the ancient world that visitors could climb a man-made structure, 300 feet up, to view the sea.
The Lighthouse at Alexandria stood for over 1500 years. Scientists believe an earthquake topped the Lighthouse during the 12 th century CE, about 250 years before Columbus discovered America!
