The cast iron tower at Lindesnes, at 16,1 meters, is not particularly high, but even so, the height of the light is 50.1 meters above sea level and it can be seen for 20 nautical miles (37 km) in clear weather. The lens is one of the largest known, a so called first order lens of French manufacture. Under extreme conditions the sea can wash over both the engine house and the tower.

The cast iron tower at Lindesnes was erected in 1915. Here, the light is still shining through the French lens which arrived at the light-house in 1854. In 1920 the lighthouse got a new, powerful foghorn and a separate machine house was built to accommodate it, its compressors and a power-supply.

There are also many traces of German building activity dating back to the Second World War visible in the lighthouse area, with building foundations, trenches, gun emplacements and rooms blasted out of the mountain. Parts of the complex are now accessible to the public and are sometimes used for, among other things, exhibitions.
