San Vicente de la Sonsierra

Main Tower / Panoramic viewpoint

It was designed as an exempt tower that would serve as a watchtower and shelter for a small garrison. Therefore, the original entry point is not the current one, but the elevated door located on the north-western flank, which would be accessed by easily defensible wooden structures in case of danger.

In 2017, the Torre Mayor (also known as the Torre del Homenaje) was equipped with the necessary infrastructure to turn it into a lookout point, as well as the landscape, the tower itself and the whole fortified area.

With this intervention the Torre Mayor has become the best point of observation of the vineyard landscape of the area.
