Torre de la Malmuerta is what remains of an old city gate. The structure was built in the early 15th century as one of several gates around the city.

When the truth surfaced, it was too late. The poor woman was innocent all along. Interestingly the Tower was also used as a prison for nobles at some stage.

Built in the early 15th century. This is a minor attraction. This albarrana tower is a defensive gate built to defend Cordoba. It was inspired by a similar gate in Seville.

A small relic - single tower & archway built 1408. A defensive structure turned into a prison. Apparently the name means "Tower of the Wrongly Dead Woman".

Built by King Henry III of Castile in the 15th century as a defensive structure for the gates adjacent. Eventually it was used as a prison for mobiles. Now a landmark and sight of the city of Seville. The story goes that name name "Torre de la Malmuerta" means "Tower of the Wrongly Dead Woman" in Spanish because a wrongly accused women dead in the tower. It's big and you certainly can't miss it. Worth a look if you've got time. Despite the slightly interesting story, don't go out of your way to see it.…
