This is an old rural tower of Arab origin that was rebuilt during the 16th century to serve as a watchtower and defence against the persistent pirate attacks that occurred in the region at that time.
The construction of this fortress owes its existence to the 13th century and belonged to the Arab domain until Alfonso X of Castile reconquered the kingdom of Murcia and again divided the land.
The structure of the tower, with thick walls, corresponds to that of a slightly inclined prism, reaching a height of almost 10 meters. From the outside, you can see its simple facade, which has a main opening that functioned as an entrance. Above it, two smaller openings served as windows to carry out surveillance tasks.
