Long Description:
"The area of Rincon de la Victoria and Benagalbón, was a settlement of the Phoenicians, and was inhabited since ancient times, as evidenced by archaeological remains found in "The Treasure Trove" that was later occupied by the Romans and then the Arabs. Then, with the arrival of the Catholic Monarchs produced a decline in its population and its strategic location in the reign of Charles III, who returned to give useful reconstructions to the lookouts where the towers area is.The tower was in a state of neglect, until not long ago, the City Council restored and protected its base. The views from the small square where the tower is located, are spectacular, entire coastal part of Rincon de la Victoria can be seen from here and are quite beautiful." (visit link)
