The Tower of Santiago

DEFENSE TOWER FROM THE 16TH CENTURY

Calle Diana 24, Albufereta, alicante.

Evolution Since The 80s

A monument revived from its ruins in the 20th century, The Tower of Santiago was rebuilt by Mr. Pedro Guillena in his desire to leave a legacy for the history of our land. The orchard of Alicante has 25 defense towers standing out of the original 43 that served to the inhabitants of the place to defend themselves from the attacks of berber pirates who looted the orchard of Alicante in the 16th century.

The Tower of Santiago

Declared as a Cultural Interest Monument in 1997 and historical heritage of the city of Alicante.
