You can find:
It is a 17th-century tower attached to the west side of the granary building or “Alhorín”, with a square floor and the base built from ashlar, and brickwork with a two-bodied structure: the lower body was divided into three sections where the machinery of the clock was installed (medium section) and the bell chamber with four semi-circular arches with each small balcony (upper section); on the upper body there is a four-sided roof crowned by a small cylindrical tower with four small semi-circular arches.

One detail:
Originally, it was the bell tower of the disappeared Chapel of the “Nieves” Virgin, which was built in the first decade of the 17th century. It was reformed in 1780 and later restored in 1854, 1954 and 1982.
