Further east than 4. Road Through the Rocks, The Fort is painted under Sidi Ferruch.  Mackintosh changed several aspects of the landscape.  He replaced the more diminutive lighthouse here with the second, more impressive lighthouse from the Redoute du Fanal over the harbour. 

He also substituted the built up base of the original lighthouse as seen in 6. The Lighthouse, with rocks. Onto the far horizon, he incorporated a view of the Cote Vermeille.
