Tower des Carregador

One of the places that every visitor remembers Playa d'en Bossa is the tower at the back of the beach. His figure at the end of the beach away from Ibiza is not lost on anyone. But getting the Torre des Carregador is not easy given the steep section at the end we found the sand. If we decide to visit by car, the most convenient and safe, we take the road between Ibiza Ses Salines. Once inside the latter, we found a short distance indicating a turn toward the tower, also called tower of salt. This place was formerly the spring of salt until it was replaced, and in times of peace, for the current dock, behind the beach of Ses Salines. The last stretch of road takes us on a dirt road to the foot of the tower itself.

Mission des Carregador tower

The defense towers had several missions according to location. The tower served Carregador des surveillance and protection. For the first case, we will find beautiful views that range from Formentera to Ibiza Castle. A portion of coastal plain now covered by hammocks and hotels, but it never ceases to amaze. His second mission, the protection of the men of the salt, became a haven for up to two hundred people, mainly workers. The strategic importance of the tower became the only one with a home inside. For the defense of the tower itself des Carregador has a protrusion that can protect the defenders of the main entrance. These protrusions lead through a chimney, to an opening in the top of the door. From here, the release of liquids, and facilitated this work.
