Pater Noster

Canon EOS 500D EFS 17-55mm

The lighthouse Pater Noster outside Marstrand island in south Bohuslän. It was built in 1868 and served until 1977 when it was replaced by a modern lighthouse at Hätteberget. In July 2002 the 33 meter high tower was lifted from its foundation and moved to Götaverken in Göteborg for an extensive renovation. In 2007 it was moved back to its original position and in september the same year lights was once again lit.

Pater Noster stand on the island Hamneskär that is, with a line to Skagen in Denmark the border between the two oceans Skagerack and Kattegatt. Today you can have your conference and stay over in the hotel. For those of you that know latin, yes the name refers to one of the most central prayers in Christianity.

Leave the light one for your loved ones, ha de Gött!
