Baron Bliss Memorial & Fort George Lighthouse

This light hosue serves as a memorial to who some consider to be Belize's greatest benefactor, Baron Bliss. Oddly, Baron Bliss never actually visited the mainland of Belize, but rather spent the last years of his life in a yacht fishing off the coast. When he died, as per his will, his massive fortune was donated to Belize, under the condition that he would be buried by a lighthouse. The wealth has been used to build schools, universities, cultural centers, and his own lighthouse.


The tall lighthouse has a red base and a bleach white top, standing as a beacon both day and night.
