Elevated in a hill, the Molinete Tower can be found, also known as the Tower of the Catholic Monarchs. It is a watchtower in a circular shape, raised on a small promontory, close to Los Vélez Castle.
The Molinete Tower was built by request of the Catholic Monarchs, who authorized it in 1490 as an appropriate structure for monitoring the coast. From its watchtower the coast could be controlled and measures could be taken for the area and the urban nucleus of Mazarrón to be protected against the frequent Barbary pirate invasions.
The Tower is considered a Site of Cultural Interest.
