One of the attractions of the village of La Mola is certainly its lighthouse perched on the cliffs, 200 meters high, from which you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the sea and the steep cliff. After visiting the lighthouse, you can take a break and stop at the bar, located a few meters away, where you can enjoy typical meats and cheeses.

Next to the lighthouse you will find a commemorative plaque in honor of the writer Jules Verne including his novel "Hector Servadac, Travels and Adventures Across the Solar World", written in 1877, which describes this place as "the end of the world" ".

El Pilar de la Mola is a little apart from the rest of the island : here the inhabitants are called 'molers', whereas everywhere else they are called 'formenterens'. Because before the road that connects all the villages of the island was built, it was quite complicated and difficult to reach La Mola ... which certainly helped to reinforce the impression of isolation that one can to feel when arriving at the village.
