“Torre des Moros” or “can Magí”

Route POI
Index card


Looking back, towards the mountain, you will see the “Torre des Moros” or “Can Magí”. It is a testimony of the defense infrastructure against pirate incursions.

The towers were located by the coast and had visual contact between them to be notified and to be able to prepare against attacks. These were communicated with the “Pólvora” tower, and with the needle of “La Pola”, and with that of the castle of Vila Vella.

On one occasion the pirates landed in Cala Morisca, already at Lloret, and they went down the torrent, taking the guardians unprepared.
