Heritage & Culture

Welcome to the IALA’s Heritage & Culture pages. The Incheon Declaration agreed at the 19th IALA Conference in 2018 has consolidated and invigorated IALA’s involvement in heritage and cultural aspects of the aids to navigation operated by member organisations. We hope you find these pages enjoyable and helpful!

”… the significance of historical lighthouses extends beyond the navigational and architectural value

to include maritime culture and history, social history, environmental aspects ….

… there is great value in documenting, researching and interpreting these

for the benefit and inspiration of future generations.”
