The Arabic Tower of Romilla

Its volumetric building and strong outlook expresses its function as a defensive military control point of the territory. A single door facing east allows access to the interior. It just has light wells on the ground and the first floor to hinder his conquest in times of possible enemy attacks. Only on the second floor are four large windows, one on each side of the tower. The terrace could be embattled with pyramidal morlones intended to place in situations of harm. From the top floor terrace an ample visual control is exercised over the territory. Its views are reaching the hills of the Alhambra, which made it possible to communicate visual between the two fortresses.
