Our coast was for many years in a very interesting place for its position on the map and also for the richness of its lands, both for cultivation and extraction of minerals and metals.
This is why the Muslims of the Nasrid Empire of Granada in the 18th century were pioneers in the construction of these beacon towers for the protection of their lands and to avoid invasions by the sea.
Later in the 16th century, along with many other new ones, these beacon towers became part of the Christian coastal defense system against North African pirate attacks.
The curious thing about these towers is that many of them still retain their original structure and they still stand even afterso many years of sea storms. You can find some of them among constructions of new urbanizations, but the best way to visit them is undoubtedly from the sea for their beautiful view and also because they are spread along the coast of Costa del Sol.
