The Egyptian lighthouse in Rethymno was created in the 1830s during the Egyptian rule of Mehmet Ali, after Crete was turned over to the Egyptians by the Turks.

It stands imposing in the Old Port of Rethymno, at the end of the old pier. Access is easy on foot for those who want to get a closer look and have a romantic timeby the sea.

It was built as part of the port works done by the Egyptians in order to eventually reconstruct the whole of Crete.
