Tower of the Cap Andritxol

The municipality of Andratx preserves several defence towers that were used to control the coast and to protect the town against pirate attacks. The Torre de Cala en Basset, the Torre de Sa Mola, the Torre des Cap Andritxol... All these form part of a network of towers that enabled setting up visual communication between the most strategic points of the island.

The Torre des Cap Andritxol, built between 1580 and 1582, is possibly the Andratx watchtower that enjoys the most privileged views. Standing 180 metres above sea level, on the promontory that separates Camp de Mar and Cala Fornells, it dominates a large part of the municipalities of Andratx, Calvia and even some points of the Bay of Palma.
