Castle and Tower of Homage
Of the few remnants of the medieval town of Zahara, the Castle and the Tower of
Homage have been preserved. Of the wall that encircled the town, the Tower – located
in the eastern part – is the best preserved. The result of the union of Nasrid and Christian
military architecture, the building has two floors divided into four compartments. The
function that the tower must have fulfilled in its time was to be the last resource for
refuge in the event that the city was invaded.
