Isulidda Tower

Isulidda Tower

The Isulidda watchtower is one of those included in the circuit designed in 1583 by the Florentine architect Camillo Camilliani, who was given the task of creating a defense system against pirates who infested the Mediterranean causing massacres, looting and destruction.

Like all other towers by Camilliani, it has a square  base and a strong embankment to house the cistern and storage for ammunition. A square room divided into two parts for the ‘torrari‘ (guardians) is located on the first floor.
On top is the terrace where  artillery was placed and where the signals (fani) with smoke and fire were sent up.
