Moorish Watchtower The Torre L’Oró

Llucena/ Lucena del Cid

This is part of a Moorish tower from which the town used to be guarded. The cylindrical construction is currently around 15 metres tall, although 100 years ago it was three times as large. During the Carlist War, it was this tower, as well as troops, that defended the town. Due to the strong resistance put up by the guerrillas defending the town, it earned the title of HEROICA VILLA (heroic town).
