Parque de la Torre del Moro

Small park with ancient tower in Torrevieja

The Parque de la Torre del Moro is located to the north of Torrevieja, almost at La Mata, and the main feature of this small park is the tower from which it gets its name.

The Torre del Moro, or Moors Tower, is a coastal watchtower built on a hill above Cabo Cervera in Torrevieja.

It is sometimes mistakenly attributed to where Torrevieja, literally translated to Old Tower, gets its name from, but this is not correct. The tower which Torrevieja is named after was located at the Eras de la Sal, and was destroyed in the 1829 earthquake, although some of the stones were used in the main church reconstruction after the disaster.

This small park offers great views across the Mediterranean Sea, and has a number of small features, such as play and exercise facilities.
