Located in Bonavista, Newfoundland and Labrador, this iconic lighthouse stands as a symbol of maritime heritage and a testament to the region's seafaring history.

Constructed in 1843, the Cape Bonavista Lighthouse served as a vital navigational aid for ships navigating the perilous waters of the North Atlantic, warning of rocky shoals and providing a guiding light to safely guide vessels to shore.
