Tower des Molar

Next to the port of Sant Miquel, we find the Torre des Molar, part of the defense of the island. His arrival is somewhat awkward, since access is via a road that starts from the entrance to the port of Sant Miquel, crossing the mountain to reach its highest point. A cliff about a hundred meters separates the sea.

History of the tower des Molar

The tower is part of the defensive strategy of the coast of Ibiza. Its construction date is set in the eighteenth century, particularly in 1763 and, although prepared to host defense artillery, the tower was never armed. Given its strategic nature, and its breathtaking views, the Torre des Molar was used as a watchtower.
