The exact age of this ancient lookout post varies, with a foundation indicating Roman origins and a top level that features medieval construction.

But one thing is obvious: The Spanish have found use for this sturdy tower for centuries, from its supposed origins as a lookout post for incoming messengers and tax collectors while the region was under Arabian control, to its current use as a tourist attraction near the Church of St. Joan of Santana.
