UNIQUE VILLA BY THE SEA

This villa is located by the edge of the sea in a unique and protected area. The plot borders with the coast and is located on top of a promontory to one side of the Xarco beach. The plot incorporates, in property, the famous Xarco tower built in the sixteenth century during the reign of Philip II.

The Mediterranean style villa offers an Ibicenco style design with large terraces and gardens.

Xarco Tower

Coastal surveillance tower with circular plant and frustoconical base 7 meters in diameter and about 12 meters high, raised on a rocky ledge at 31 meters above sea level, built in the 16th century, under the reign of Felipe II.

It forms part of a set of towers constructed to prevent the incursions of the Berber pirates (Ottoman corsairs) that until the XVIII century attacked the coasts of the Mediterranean coast in search of booties and hostages for whom they demand rescues. Once the enemy was seen, the signal was transmitted to the nearby towers and the populations were alerted.

The alarm even reached Alcoy (60 km inland). The signs were made with the light and the smoke of the bonfires. .

At the top you can see one of the four lozenges or windows that served to defend the tower.
