The Lighthouse of Alexandria, more commonly known as the Pharos Lighthouse, was a wonder of Alexandria similar to the Library of Alexandria. It was also one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Barbara Wright was never as interested in wonders like the Lighthouse, instead being more concerned about the people. (PROSE: The Book of Shadows) The Fourth Doctor referred that slaves were employed to keep its bonfires going. (TV: Horror of Fang Rock)

The Pharos Project in 1981 was named after this structure, as Tegan Jovanka explained that "Pharos" was ancient Greek for "lighthouse." (TV: Logopolis)

Like the other six Wonders, it was stolen by Pholonius Ginn, who intended on selling it to the highest bidder on G-Bay. It later returned by Trongus Squum, at the Tenth Doctor's request. (COMIC: Minus Seven Wonders)
