From the Macenas Castle there is a dirt road that culminates at the Pirulico Tower, also known as El Peñon Tower.

It was built in 1526 on an old tower and is a cylindrical shaped tower 10 meters high. The tower has the peculiarity of having a tunnel excavated in its center, which was done in 1526 when they referred to it as the Horadada Tower. It is currently restored and is in good condition.
The rock with the tower and its great natural arch form a site of singular natural beauty. It communicates visually with the Rayo Tower, forming the coastal defensive system, from Adra to Mojacar.
