Tower of the Palace, Terrassa

3.7
#11 of 16 in Things to do in Terrassa
The ancient stones reverberate with dark secrets, priceless jewels glint in fortified vaults and ravens strut the grounds.

The Tower of London, founded by William the Conqueror in 1066, is one of the world’s most famous fortresses, and one of Britain’s most visited historic sites. Despite a grim reputation for a place of torture and death, there are so many more stories to be told about the Tower. This powerful and enduring symbol of the Norman Conquest has been enjoyed as a royal palace, served as an armoury and even housed a zoo! An intriguing cast of characters have played their part: including the dastardly jewel-thief Colonel Blood, tragic Lady Jane Grey and maverick zoo keeper Albert Cops.

  • I think that it is a building from the end of the 17TH century, as evidenced found inside elements, used in its bottom as a black hole of the ayuntamiiento or legal representative, and the upper part used as file of the Badia family, notaries and archivists. The form of construction with decrease of the single wall construction, its perfect form, the entrance to the North at medium altitude, lack of any home or chimney, as incompatible with the stored books and the use of lime, sand and canto rolled, similar to that is seen in walls built on the mentioned date make as Antonio Moro and Garcia say I believe that the date of construction must be placed at the end of the 17TH century , when grew considerably the population and the textile industry to open up the direct market with the Americas with Felipe V.Todo the others, plans, descriptions eytc, pure invention.

  • Beautiful medieval tower, the 12th, vestige that has been preserved of the walled enclosure of Terrassa. The environment has urbanized so that is a very nice spot.

  • It is worth to see this ancient tower in Terrassa, part of the old wall that surrounded the city then, from atop can see a good view of the Cathedral and the old town.
