The waters off Lista may look inviting in fair weather, but the Lighthouse sends its warning lights beyond one of Norway’s most feared coastal stretches. During the autumn of 1781, as many as eight ships went down. It was not until 1836 that the area was improved with a 34-meter-high lighthouse, carved in granite.
