About Location
The Baron Bliss Lighthouse is a lighthouse in Belize City that was built in 1924. The lighthouse is named after Henry Edward Earnest Victor Bliss, commonly known as "Baron Bliss", a British aristocrat who died in 1926 and left his fortune in Belize.  Bliss had never actually set foot on Belizean shores, but he was a great benefactor of the country. He donated money to build schools, hospitals, and other infrastructure.

He died with the request of being buried in a granite tomb, enclosed by iron fencing, near the sea with a lighthouse nearby.
