El Verger

Torre de la Cremadella

The Tower of Cremadella (known locally as Torre de La Cremadella) is a monument located in the municipality of El Verger, in the region of La Marina Alta. It was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in 1996.

It is the oldest building in the town, dating back to the end of the 13th century, and its main function was to defend the dispersed population and the hamlet in this area, under the dominion of the Castle of Segària.

It is a rectangular floor plan construction, measuring 6.30 by 7.50 metres, with its long side oriented in a north-south direction. It is about ten metres high and is divided into three floors. The ground floor consists of two rooms with the function of a cistern and cellar, covered with a barrel vault and made of solid brick. The rooms are interconnected and are accessed from the south of the tower.

The first floor has been modified for residential use, as has its access by way of an external staircase, although it seems to respect the original entrance. Finally, the second floor is a later construction, since it is built differently. It has four windows, one per facade. The roof is gabled and was made with Arabic tiles.

In 2005, the existence of a settlement around the tower was discovered, which grew during the beginning of the Christian conquest of the lands of La Marina Alta. In the excavations, carried out by the archaeologists Josep Antoni Gisbert and Joan Pastor, the remains of a household were brought to light, with an entire floor and a patio for the flock of sheep, as well as remains of Muslim ceramics from the 13th and 14th centuries. It was perhaps an Andalusian enclave, despite being under Christian dominion.
