The legend, only known by the inhabitants of the area, tells that the beaches and their inhabitants were the object of frequent pirate attacks, and that thanks to the watchtower system and the use of sea shells as a warning system, it was possible to end they. The pirate chief was pierced with an incandescent iron, piercing his hand, and giving the area its name: La Torre de la mano Horadada, which later evolved into “La Torre de la Horadada”, name current.
The Watchtower belonged to the coastal surveillance system of Felipe II, and was built in 1591 on another previous tower. It marked the traditional southern limit of the Kingdom of Valencia, and during the 19th century it was used to make signals with the optical telegraph. It is a tower with a conical base, plastered and crenellated, which has several windows. Access to the interior is done from inside the private house to which it is attached. Its name comes from the interior arrangement of its floors, which were communicated by a central hole that crossed the tower from top to bottom.
