Motxa Tower (Vila-real), a trip through the remains of history

Motxa Tower


The Motxa Tower is the primary living evidence of the city’s medieval past. The last bit remaining of the defensive wall that once surrounded Vila-real, the Motxa Tower next to Casa de l’Oli delimited the south-eastern corner of the walled enclosure. The tower was rebuilt in 1424.  A small grating can still be seen on the base that had been part of the sewage system drain from the old city in the Middle Ages.
