Torre de s’Estalella

About

Torre de s’Estalella is one of the many preserved watchtowers that was constructed in the modern age due to the threat of corsairs.

The purpose of this tower, was to spot hostile ships in the sea and, communicate with the neighboring watchtowers of Torre de Son Durí, Torre de Vallgonera and Torre de Cala Pi.

In total, more than 85 watchtowers were erected along the coasts of Mallorca that all communicated using smoke signals and flags.

Torre de s’Estalella was designed by military architect Simó Carrió, in 1577, on the cliff of Serral des Corral, 7 meters above sea level.

Once you reach the old watchtower, you will understand thew strategic considerations done to raise it here. It is hidden behind the small rocky headland that juts and forms the cove. Behind the tower there is an area of shrubbery and pine that could supply dry firewood.

The tower has a measurement of 9.3 meter in height and 7.1 meter in diameter.
