Puig Morei

Moreia Watchtower is on the summit of Morei mountain, in the heart of the Natural Park of Levant. It was built in 1557 as a guard element from pirate attacks, mainly Argelian, controlling all the bay of Alcudia and the Menorcan channel. It is a tower of circular floor plan of 10 metres height with one sole room and a terrace. Access through the door, which is 5 metres from the ground for defensive reasons, was made by an easy to dismantle wooden stair. Furthermore, there are remains of a machicolation that was placed on top of the entrance doorway.
