Rame Tower

Rame Tower, locally known as Torre del Rame, lies south of the town of Los Alcázares in the province of Murcia in Spain.

The Rame Tower was first mentioned in the 13th century when the area was described after the recent reconquest of the Kingdom of Murcia by Alfonso X of Castile. It was then described as: "The structure of both towers is similar: tapering to the top, eight to ten meters high, walls 1.5 meters thick, a ground floor and two upper floors, a crenelated terrace on top and a considerable defensive mud wall to protect the stables and barn." I believe the other tower to be the nearby Negro Tower due to its proximity and rather similar appearance.

Rame Tower is now derelict and stands on a fenced off spot next to a golf course. It can however easily be viewed from the public road. Negro Tower is nearby.
