What to visit in Huercal-Overa
Its renovation included daring decisions, such as the incorporation of a kind of cylindrical structure, which allowed the installation of a staircase for better access for tourists and visitors. It has gained popularity because many people visit the tower to see its restoration and enjoy the magnificent view offered from the top.
The interior of the tower also underwent restoration, which makes it easier to appreciate the details of its decorated walls and ceilings.
This architectural work has been nominated for the Aga Khan architecture awards, for its recent restoration, in which contemporary elements were included to facilitate access to an old work, without intervening or altering its nature.
