The application "French lights" presents more than 1000 lighthouses and lights from France and its surroundings.

Lighthouses details are available by:
- a "Map" view to locate all the listed lighthouses.

This application requires the installation of Google Play Services Play (13 MB).

All data and pictures can be viewed offline. Maps and visit informations need an internet connection.
