Morella. Portal de Sant Miquel

Undoubtedly, te towers de San Miguel de Morella are arguably the most spectacular set around the perimeter walls of Morella. Built in 1360 by Domingo Taravall, are named for its proximity to the Esgléssia de Sant Miquel de Morella and protect one of the main gateways to the town. Privileged witnesses of the history of Morella have seen frontline conflicts, assaults and bombings in the War of Succession and the Carlist Wars. A visit highly recommended.
In addition, the Towers of San Miguel have become the Towers of Games, in which you can have dozens of games of skill and wit for all the family in some king of exhibition hall in the towers.
