House of the Storks (Birds Eye)
Constructed towards the end of the 15th century by Diego de Cáceres; it is also known as the "Palace of the storks" and "Tower of the Storks." It is classifiable as a completely unique construction; this battlement tower overpowers the city demonstrating its grandeur.

Today, it houses the military governance and it corresponds with the House of the Casa de los Cáceres Ovando.

This defensive tower was the only one allowed to be erected during the reign of the Catholic Kings, which couriously it was a time when they ordered the destruction of all of the other towers to teach the rebel lords a lesson due to their arrognace.
