Torre de la Horadada

2111

Pilar de la Horadada has a long and interesting history. After the city was settled by Iberians, Romans and Moors, the coastal road was an important route for Carthaginians and Romans. The most famous historical monument is the Torre de le Horadada, it stands on a promontory overlooking the Mediterranean.

The watchtower belonged to the coastal surveillance system of Philip II and was built in 1591, on a previous tower. It protected the city from attacks. According to legend, the beaches and the inhabitants were formerly often attacked by pirates. Thanks to the watchtowers and the use of shells as warning systems could withstand the attacks and even ward. The watchtower Torre de la Horadada is well preserved, it is located right on the harbor, meaning namely “perforated tower”. Through the holes inside the guard could entertain and stay connected. The name of the town Pilar de la Horadada arose because of the many watchtowers with your small hatches. The Torre de la Horadada is private property and even inhabited, it belongs to the descendants of the Earl of Rochester.
