  • The tower was, at the time, the Bell Tower of the Church of Santa Maria disappeared. It is possible to climb the 100 steps to reach the Summit and enjoy a panoramic view of the city. Please inquire about visiting hours. If the tower is occupied by storks, the visit will not happen.

  • The Tower of the vanished Church of Santa María la Mayor, recently restored as a splendid view of the old town, complements the interpretation centre "The universes of Cervantes" inviting us to travel around the city to bird's eye view. In this place, in the middle ages, outside the walls of the village, was the chapel of S. Juan Bautista (called the Cavalleros). The year 1449, the Archbishop Carrillo moved to this Chapel the parish of Santa María la Mayor and ten years later gives "Tower and bells". The construction which sought out a large church, partly by pulling the chapel began in 1553. It will be in the first years of the 19th century when the tower which changed the Spire and restored the staircase, already in the 20th century, after a fortuitous fire rises. 34 meters and 109 steps lead us by the life and works of the illustrious Miguel de Cervantes. Next to this tower found the baptismal Chapel of the Church, the place where a 9 October 1547 was named after the author of Don Quixote. Furthermore, the ascent to the Tower proposed a challenge encrypted that will surprise the visitor.
