Tower des irrigator. Arriving at the tower

Torre des Irrigator has incredible views over the coast

One of the places that every visitor of Playa d’en Bossa remembers is the tower at the bottom of the beach. Its figure at the end of the beach farthest from Ibiza does not go unnoticed to anyone. But getting to the Torre des Irrigator is not easy considering the steep stretch that we found at the end of the sand. If we decide to visit it by car, the most comfortable and safe way, we must take the road that connects Ibiza with Ses Salines. Once we enter the latter, we find within walking distance a detour indicating the direction to the tower, also called Torre de la Sal. In This place was formerly the spring of the salt, until it was replaced, already in peacetime, by the current pier, behind the beach of Ses Salines. The last stretch of road takes us down a dirt road to the foot of the tower itself.

Mission of the Tower des Irrigator

The Defense Towers had several missions according to their location. The Tower was used as surveillance and protection. For The first case, we will find beautiful views that cover from Formentera to the castle of Ibiza. A portion of Costa Plana covered today by hammocks and hotels, but it does not stop surprising. His second mission, the protection of the salt men, turned it into a shelter with capacity for two hundred people, mainly workers. The strategic importance of the tower made it the only one with a home inside. To defend the toweritself, it has an overhang that allows the defenders of the main entrance to be protected. These ledges lead through a chimney, to an opening at the top of the door. From here, the release of liquids and objects facilitated these tasks.
