The Tower is located at the highest point of the hill, and is a visual landmark both inside and outside the urban center. The possible existence in its factory of remains that are believed to be Romans and Arabs suggests the possibility of settlements of these peoples in its surroundings. The oldest preserved elements are the Mudejar apse and the medieval tower, with Romanesque reminiscences. Multiple damages have passed through its walls and they have suffered a thousand vicissitudes over the centuries, which is why its original style has been masked and complicates its dating. Today it serves as a cultural center.
