Raper Lighthouse - Gulf of Penas, Chile
I put to appreciate the remote locations where there are lights inhabited with Chileans doing homeland and sovereignty. The faro Raper is in the Gulf of Penas, place known by seamen of all the world by the evil sea and wind conditions that prevail during almost all year round. Ramiro Navajas
