The Torre de Ses Puntes in Manacor dates back to the early 14th century when it was a fortified stronghold ready to defend against intrusion from Saracen or pirate invaders. Manacor was possibly still called Manqûr when this fortress was built. The crenellated parapet wall on top of the building suggest a Moorish influence. The building was extensively restored some fifteen or twenty years ago and has since then been used as a place for temporary exhibitions of contemporary art, being the seat of the Patronat d’Arts Plàstiques de Manacor.
