Lindesnes Lighthouse was first built in 1655 in Lindesnes, Vest-Agder, Norway. In 1822, it was refitted with a coal lamp, and in 1854 a new lamp was installed with the current lens. The current cast iron tower was set up in 1915 and fitted with the old Fresnel lens. In 1920 the lighthouse station got its first fog signal, a siren. The fog signal and its machinery is placed in a building beside the tower.

During World War II the lighthouse was taken over by the Germans. Being an important watch-point, the Germans built a small fortress with four guns and, after a while, a radar antenna. The traces from World War II are visible as trenches, tunnels, and other fortifications.

The lighthouse was fully automated in 2003.
