2.-Torre Vigia cap d´Or
The Tower Vigia is one of the most important monuments of Moraira. This old watchtower is located at the top of Cap d’Or, and it was built in the 16th century to protect the people of continuous pirate attacks. From this tower the sea was controlled and they warned the interior of any outbreak. It is currently one of the most important attractions of Moraira, from which you can contemplate a magnificent panoramic view of the whole area.

Another essential visit in Moraira is the Castle of the Sea, which was also built with a monitoring and defensive purpose. This tower-castle, located on a rocky part of the beach l’Ampolla, has been restored and enabled as a historical museum. We recommend you to take some time to visit this simply because of its history and its breathtaking views.
4.- Iglesia-fortaleza de Santa Catelina Martir
Last but not least, we recommend a fascinating visit to the church of Santa Catelina Martir.
