Also known as Bishop Tower, this is located in the Huerta de Abajo area, two kilometres from the centre of Alguazas, strategically located at the confluence of the Mula and Segura rivers.
It is believed that it was built in the 14th century and that its function was to control the area, which was fertile and productive soil. In addition, from its position, it allowed for observation of the surrounding territories, thus providing security to the peasants and shepherds.
Without a doubt, it also served to demonstrate the power that the lord had over his vassals, at a time when the bishops of Cartagena exercised dominion over the town of Alguazas.
The current appearance of the tower is quite different from the original, as among the reforms that were made in the 19th century, a body with a hipped roof was added.
