According to tradition, Boabdil “El Chico”, the last king of Granada, was imprisoned in the tower after being captured by the Christian army in the Battle of Lucena and kept there until he surrendered to the demands imposed by the Catholic Monarchs. Imposingly tall and well preserved, the tower is one of the most stunning and superb defensive constructions in Andalusia.
