Not Mahatao Lighthouse

Many people call this the Mahatao Lighthouse and I almost made the same mistake. With a little research, I found out that this is the Tayid Lighthouse in the town of Mahatao. The real Mahatao Lighthouse was built in the 1700s and has now fallen into disrepair. Visitors of Batanes are taken to the Tayid Lighthouse instead because it is more picturesque. It offers no historical value though.
