The view is underwhelming and certainly one of the best in Torrevieja. The tower is a replica of the 14th century and today is the symbol of the city of Salt. Destination and popular photo opportunity with Visitor Center and a small park. A place with historical roots of Torrevieja.

Casino:

The casino opposite the Marina Club Nautico is a cultural meeting place of the city. It ranks among the top attractions of Torrevieja.
