The Torre de Cala Pi

The Torre de Cala Pi is one of three coastal defense towers in the municipality of Llucmajor, together with the Torre de Cap Blanc and the Torre de s’Estelella, and is one of 45 ancient torres on Mallorca’s coastline.

The Torre de Cala Pi guards the entrance to the cove of Cala Pi and stands at about 19.5 m above sea level. The tower was built after several attacks by the Ottoman Turks in 1543 and was completed in 1663. To my knowledge, the tower was never successfully conquered, not by pirates or Maurish marauders, anyway.

The photo was taken in Cala Pi, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: August 24th, 2012. The time was 17:45:04.

  1. One of the hotels we often stay at while visiting in Mallorca is the apartments at Cala Pi – love wandering down to the Torre in the evening! Thanks for the background!

  2. 120 years to complete a small tower? Here was I thinking that today’s workers were sometimes slow!
