Torre de la Vela

Local name: Torre de la Vela

Located inside: Alhambra

This historic watchtower is now a popular vantage point. At its top there is a small belfry - the effect of reconstruction from the late nineteenth century. This bell performed very important functions, firstly warning residents about the threat, and secondly informing nearby farmers about the need to irrigate the fields.
