During the 15th and 17th centuries, the Catalan coastline suffered numerous pirate raids. The population of Santa Susanna built large towers and fortified their homes to protect themselves against these dangers, keeping a watch on the sea and raising the alarm if corsairs were sighted. A number of these towers still remain today in Santa Susanna. Would you like to explore them?
