Constanta – an architectural view (I)

Constanta - Ovid's Statue - Situated in front of the Museum of Natural History and Archaeology, in Ovid’s Square, the statue honours the Roman poet, Publius Ovidius Naso, who was exiled to Tomis (today Constanta) in 8 AD. It was designed in 1887 by the Italian sculptor Ettore Ferrari.

Constanta - The Genoese Lighthouse - It was built in 1300 by the Genoese merchants and restored in 1858-1860. The lighthouse (8 m high) had been functional until 1913. It is very close to the Casino (aprox. 5 minutes' walk).
