First to Review

Alongside the square that contains Saint Simeon’s Church, you'll find this large tower, which was built during the 13th century as part of the city's old wall defence system. Whilst it doesn't look that special in appearance, it’s now possible to go up to the top of the Captain’s Tower for superb views over the old town and out to sea. The small square below it is also quite interesting, with five wells in a line that were built by the Venetians during the 16th century in order to improve the city's drinking water supplies.

Madrid, Spain

Justo enfrente de la Torre del Capitán se encuentra la plaza de los 5 aljibes o pozos de agua, construidos en el medioevo con el fin de abastecer de agua potable a la ciudad. Hoy en día adornan la plaza que lleva su nombre, están dispuestos en fila, uno al lado del otro, guardando las distancias. Es digna de ser visitada tanto de día como de noche. Además está a los pies del parque de la reina Jelena Madijevka el cual también se puede recorrer.

Playa de Gandia, Spain

En el siglo XVI, por la posibilidad de la invasión turca de la ciudad, los venecianos construyeron una gran cisterna de agua con cinco pozos que permitían abastecer de agua a la ciudad. De aquí deriva el nombre de la plaza, y aunque ya esos pozos de agua no cumplen ninguna función, adornan el lugar de día y de noche. Por la noche los pozos están muy bien iluminados lo que da una linda imagen de la plaza. Durante la temporada alta en este sitio suele haber eventos musicales.
