Quart Towers

Guillem de Castro, 89; 46003 - Valencia

TOURISTIC AREA: Historical center

The city's fortified gate

Built by Pere Bonfill, who was inspired by the Castell Nuovo towers in Naples, the Quart Towers represent a good example of late Gothic military constructions. They were conceived as defensive gates for the city and until 1874 were known as the Torres de la Cal (The Limestone Towers), since the limestone that came into the city had to come in through these gates. The back of the towers was opened to allow a view of the inside. It was the women´s prison for some time.

The Quart Towers played a vital part in stopping Napoleon's troops in 1808 during the tar of Independence against the French. The scars left on the towers by cannon balls can still be seen today.
