How to reach Torre des Pi des Català
The old Camí Vell de La Mola, in the section that connects the towns of Sant Francesc and Sant Ferran, runs, asphalted and parallel to the main road.
Drive along this section of road and, approximately in the middle of it, you will find a detour in the direction of the sea with a sign indicating the Torre des Pi des Català.
Continue along it, with caution, since it is a paved road until you reach the beach.
Once there, you will be able to make out behind you, on a hill and among the pines, the silhouette of the Torre des Pi des Català.
Now you only have to walk to it.
The Torre des Pi des Català, like the rest of the defense towers of Formentera, were located on the ground by the then captain general of the Balearic Islands, Francisco de Paula Bucarelli y Ursúa and, in the case of this tower, under the direction of the military engineer José García Martínez between the years 1762 and 1763.
Of the four defense towers on Formentera, the Torre des Pi des Català is the furthest from the coastline, and this is due to the characteristics of the terrain in this part of Formentera.
As in the rest of the defense towers of Formentera, its body is frustoconical, it has two floors, and also an access to the roof of the same where, in its beginnings, there was a sentry box and a parapet.
The original access door is located on the first floor, but the circumstances of the 20th century led to the opening of a hole in the ground floor of the same, which, after its restoration, became an access door.
