Lots of work went into this beautiful tower and it's a shame you cant get into the government buildings. Nice to take a picture of but nothing else around it.

Appears as though it was a lookout tower for a gate in the city wall. We admired it from all sides but entrance is not permitted. Present use is as a government building.

The tower was built in the 15th century as part of the Palace of Sotomayor. It houses now a government office. It has a square base that turns into an octagon as it goes up.

We found that tower and liked what we saw. As mentioned earlier the tower is quite unusual as it's square at the base and octagonal at the top. Seems like it's a private property so no entrance for visitors.
