We climbed to the Torre del Pirata

It is not 30 minutes of walking, certainly on a slope, that will discourage us. With a magnificent view of Es Vedra, towards Torre Del Pirata.

The Torre des Savinar, also known as Torre del Pirata or Torre des Cap des Jueu, is, in the opinion of many Ibicencos, the most beautiful place on the island.

Click on a photo to enlarge it.

It is located inside the Cala d’Hort nature reserve, suspended from a cliff, facing the islets of Es Vedrà and Es Vedranell.

For the record, it was completed in 1756 and, although designed as an artillery tower, it was never able to shelter cannons, but to serve as a watchtower.

If the time is right, the host will be happy to welcome you and tell you the story of the tower.

Es savinar is the only tower that retains its original door at the upper entrance, accessible by a ramp.

The nickname Torre del Pirata was received by the writer Vicente Blasco Ibáñez in his novel “Los muertos mandan”.
