  • Appears between the buildings, in a wide square and a street, is showy and colorful, still well preserved and cared for.

  • We went with tourist train and saw it, awesome, very high and a very striking and colorful facade. It is worth to see it from the outside and also learn the history of this tower along with the el Salvador. Beautiful story.

  • A great tower! Tall, powerful and at the same time bright and elegant. In my opinion, the most beautiful in Teruel.
