Vaillo Tower

Vaillo Tower, locally known as Torre de Vaillo, Torre de Los Vaillo, Torre Vaillos or Torre Vaillo de Llanos, lies on the north side of the city of Elche in the province of Alicante in Spain.

When exactly the Vaillo Tower was built is unknown. It was built somewhere between the end of the middle ages and the first half of the 16th century. It was one of a series of buildings around Elche intended as a place of refuge for locals and a lookout post for possible attacks by Barbary pirates. The tower is named after its original owners; the Vaillo de Llanos family, Counts of Torrellano. 

At present the interior of Vaillo Tower can not be visited, at least not that I know of. The city of Elche also houses Altamira Castle, the Calahorra Tower and the Ressemblanc watch tower. So together with the Palmeral; a large historical palm grove in the center of the city, this is a real nice place to visit.
