The enchanting effects of the lighthouse
The lighthouse is steeped in a poetic sense of nostalgia and the sight of it alone is enough to have an impact on your overall impression of the town.

From the sea, the tall white tower can easily be picked out against the backdrop of the trees as it stands out brightly on the beach. While it no longer serves its former purpose, it is bursting with vibrant historical appeal and continues to fascinate the many visitors who come to Bibione every year.

The lighthouse was built near the mouth of the Tagliamento River in the early 20th century. Once a navigational aid for those at sea, it has now been transformed into a place where holidaymakers from afar can gather.

The house next to the lighthouse is now used as a venue for art exhibitions, music events, high-calibre environmental studies, conventions and conferences. There are cycle and pedestrian paths to both the South and the North of the lighthouse, so cyclists often stop to take a break and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. It’s a great place to walk your dog and some people come here every day simply to admire the breathtaking landscape and savour the natural wonders all around.

We mustn’t forget…
…the natural marvels all around the lighthouse! The area combines a number of different habitats. Thanks to the nearby river, typical Mediterranean plants grow alongside Alpine flora and orchids in a perfectly balanced environment.

Is the lighthouse calling you? Head down to the shore and experience it for yourself!

The idea of Progetto LuMe started in 2019 with the aim of safeguarding and preserving the memory of the Bibione Lighthouse.

An intense research work has allowed the collection of autobiographical material never seen before, thanks to the oral testimonies and photographs of the lighthouse keepers and mariners, and of their relatives. The archives of the Italian Military Navy have returned important historical documents and drawings for the reconstruction of the events and the architectural changes of the Lighthouse over time.

At the end of the exhibition, Progetto LuMe will go on becoming the first archive of memory of the Bibione Lighthouse: a collection of photos and stories (“My best memory at the Lighthouse”) that will be soon published in the website, hoping to see it growing over time.

All material collected has been selected and elaborated to organize the contents of the exhibition “LuMe – Storie di Luce e Memorie” (LuMe – Stories of Light and Memories) at the Bibione Lighthouse.

The visitor will be taken through the discovery of the Lighthouse’s history, from its construction to the present time and will listen to the stories of its protagonists.

Free entry.

During the opening hours of the Lighthouse, it is possible to visit the PRIMIS project.


The overall project objective is to enhance the linguistic, cultural and natural heritage shared by the minorities of the programme area in order to attract sustainable cultural tourism.


The common challenge of the programme area to which the PRIMIS project will contribute is the "Conservation, protection and restoration of cultural and natural heritage". The overall project objective is to enhance the value of the linguistic, cultural and natural heritage of the linguistic communities in the programme area in order to attract sustainable tourism. This area is by nature multicultural and multilingual, due to the presence of Slovenian and Italian national minorities and other language communities (Cimbrians, Ladins, Friulians) making it unique compared to other territories in Italy and Slovenia. The project will bring about a new perception of the multicultural and multilingual identity of the PA for both tourists and residents. The main outputs are the creation of 4 Multimedia Centres for the dissemination of the specificities and peculiarities of the indigenous language communities; a multimedia platform and a digital guide; the enhancement and promotion of cultural events in the PA; information and training activities for specific target groups. The beneficiaries are: tourists, residents, young people, SMEs, project partners. The intended approach is to transfer the multicultural and multilingual peculiarities of the indigenous communities to the tourism sector and the promotion of the cross-border territory through the use of innovative, interactive and multimedia tools with immersive and virtual reality in the Multimedia Centres. The approach will go beyond the current practices of the sector (sea-mountain) because it will help to create tourism products based on the cultural and linguistic heritage of the PA. Cross-border cooperation is necessary because it brings together the diversities and peculiarities linked to multiculturalism and multilingualism to create a unique image of the PA. The project is original because it considers the material and immaterial cultural heritage of the indigenous language communities as an added value for an economic activity - cultural and sustainable tourism.
