Overview
More
The tower of El Salvador was built in the early XIVth century. The central section resembles the Almohad minarets' placement of a tower inside another tower. The inner rooms display information about Mudéjar Architecture. On 28 November 1986 UNESCO declared the whole Teruel mudéjar complex a World Heritage site, due to its exceptional and universal value. Its primary function is still that of a bell tower. It has been open to visitors since its last restoration in 1993.

Definitely worth the climb. Great views from the top and the bells ring while you are up there. Reward yourself with jamón and vino after the climb

Mudéjar is a style of arquitecture which is partly Gothic and partly Islamic prevalent in Spain in the 12th to 15th centuries. This tower is an excellent example of this art which is matematically so precise.

Torre de San Salvador was at the back of hotel. We passed through this on the way to the main tourist square in the old part of the town.

Climbing up the hundred and fifty-odd steps is well worth the effort (reward yourself with jamon and wine accordingly). The views are fantastic.
