Torre de Llebeig

About

Torre de Llebeig is visited on the dragon island, Sa Dragonera, 7 km from the port of Sant Elm.

Torre de Llebeig is named after the special warm wind that comes from the southwest and blows to the east, which in the Balearic Islands is called “llebeig”.

The tower was constructed in 1585 and is strategically located on the island’s southernmost cliffs.

Torre de Llebeig was not armed with a cannon or mortar, just a single guard with a musket or other light handgun. The tower acted exclusively as an observation tower and was to communicate with the towers on the coasts of Mallorca, using smoke signals, in case of threats.

The tower was renovated in 2004 for just over € 50,000.
