Fisgard Lighthouse

Built in 1860 to serve the British Royal Navy's Pacific Squadron at the entrance of Esquimalt harbour, the Fisgard Lighthouse holds the distinction of being the first lighthouse built on Canada's west coast.  Still in use today (though automated since 1929), the lighthouse guides mariners to the nearby harbours and anchorages as well as serves as one of the most iconic tourist destinations in the Capital Regional District. It is a national historic site managed by Parks Canada as part of Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites of Canada.
