Zei-Abu-Zeit Tower


Argelita

The Zei-Abu-Zeit Tower standing above the main square in the town was once a part of the exterior defensive structure at the Abú Zayd Palace. 


It’s cylindrical with a ground floor and two higher floors, topped by battlements. The brickwork is masonry with several windows and a raised door topped by a round arch.

It’s been perfectly restored and features an Arabic inscription dating it to 1252.

The inside houses the Municipal Museum.
