Moro Tower

Moro Tower, locally known as Torre del Moro, lies in a field, south of the village of Cuesta Blanca in the province of Murcia in Spain.

In the 16th and 17th century the area of Cartagena was prone to attacks by Barbary pirates. Several rural watch towers were built which both served as a place of refuge for the local farmers and as a signal tower.

The Moro Tower was built in the 16th century, during the reign of Philip II of Spain. It has a square plan. Originally it would have had 3 floors (of which now only 2 remain) and a crenelated terrace on top.

Moro Tower is situated in a orchard of almond trees. It is private property and can not be visited. It can however easily be viewed from the public road. Rubia Tower is nearby.
