TORRE DEL BUJACO
Y ERMITA DE LA PAZ
EN LA PLAZA MAYOR
Arab Tower of Bujaco and hermitage of the peace
The Bujaco Tower is the most beautiful one of the five that are left in the city when it was under Muslim control throughout the 12th century.
Also known as the "New Tower" or "Watch Tower", its most popular name derives from the Calif Abu-ya-gub. This slender (25 mtrs tall) tower is next to the Peace Hermitage which was originally built in the 16th century and reconstructed in the baroque style in the 18th century.
