Tower Verger

One of the oldest and most emblematic coastal lookout towers on Majorca

A circular watch tower and coastal signal tower built in the 16th century (1579). Located in a privileged setting in the Tramuntana Mountains.

This lookout tower, also known as ‘talaya des Verger’, ‘des Coll d'en Verger’ or ‘de Banyalbufar’, and currently as ‘talaya de ses Ànimes’ or ‘sa Torreta’, used to be part of the network of signalling towers that ran along the entire edge of the Tramuntana mountain range. It has a circular layout, with the remains of a machicolation and arrow loops. It was built (1579) to replace an old hut that fulfilled the same purpose, and was the only lookout tower and signalling tower in Banyalbufar.
