The Castellar Tower

The Castellar Tower is located on the islet of the same name, just in front of the urban nucleus of Llançà. Currently, this islet is connected to the coastline by means of an asphalted esplanade.

The tower was built in 1566 with the purpose of providing defense to the port of Llançà. The complex had cannons and a small number of soldiers to provide service.
In the 17th century, in the context of the War of the Reapers, the Castellar Tower was destroyed by French troops. Today, only a part of the tower's base remains.
