Faro della Vittoria (Victory Lighthouse) is a lighthouse on Gretta hill near Trieste, in Italy. With a height of 223 feet (68 meters), it’s one of the tallest lighthouses in the world.
It was constructed between 1923 and 1927 to commemorate those who died at sea during World War I. The location was chosen because of the importance of Trieste, acquired by Italy after the war. The lighthouse was designed specifically to be taller than the Berlin Victory Column, which stood at a height of 204 feet (62.3 meters). It also sits atop a former Austrian fort
