Moorish Tower41.770300, 2.166538Moorish TowerCastellcir Catalunya, España (Directions)

The Moorish Tower is located at the junction of the Castellcir stream and the Centelles stream, within the municipality of Castellcir, in the region of Moianès.

At this point, we can see the remains of the Moorish Tower, a circular tower from the medieval period. Surely, its chronology is from the 11th century.

This tower is located in a strategic point next to the stream of Castellcir and the Torrent of Centelles, in the lower part of the valley. The fact that the tower is not high, makes us think that its use is directly linked to the castle of Castellcir, since this way the field of vision of the castle was extended.

We can see how the tower was built with well worked ashlars.
