Torre de El Salvador

Top choice tower in Teruel

The most impressive of Teruel's Mudéjar towers, 40m-tall El Salvador is an early-14th-century extravaganza of brick and ceramics built on the model of an Almohad minaret, with one tower inside another and a staircase occupying the space between. You can climb up to the bell chamber at the top, with its two levels of elegantly arched windows providing Teruel's best city panoramas. On the way up you'll find interesting exhibits on Mudéjar art and architecture and old Teruel.
