ALMUDAINA TOWER

  

Almudaina is located at 587 metres above sea level in the mountainous area of El Comtat, inland of Alicante. Visitors who come to this tranquil and pleasant place can now discover the historic Almudaina tower. It is a sign of the town’s identity, and was described as rough and square, by Gabriel Miró in his novel Las cerezas del cementerio (Cementery cherries) (1910).

Built in the Medieval Islamic period, the towe formed part of the fortified stronghold (the cortig) of a small hamlet. The settlement was known from then on as `al-Mudayyina’: the citadel, from which today’s name Almudaina comes from. 

Restoration work carried out on the tower and its surroundings has uncovered a number of marks on the walls. These are evidence of the curious technique used in the tower’s construction and the sequences of changes that it went through in its 800 years of history.

Entering through the threshold of the tower’s small doorway, visitors are able to explore inside the fortification. Here, display panels submerge visitors in the history of the tower and of Almudaina.

Along with the tower, Gabriel Miró Posuna* has a great deal to offer travellers.

*Posuna is the literary name of Almudaina.
