Torre des Savinar

Tower in South Ibiza

The lofty, spectacularly located Torre des Savinar defence tower boasts sweeping views directly over the enigmatic islets of Es Vedrà and Es Vedranell, and southeast to pancake-flat Formentera. It was constructed in 1763 to safeguard Ibiza's southern flank from pirate attacks: it's also known as Torre d’en Pirata. The tower is a 10-minute walk uphill from the main Es Vedrà viewpoint, in the island's far southwest.
