TEULADA-MORAIRA town hall issued a notice barring access to Moraira’s Cap d’Or tower.
Rehabilitating the tower began shortly before the State of Alarm stopped work in March although the €1.2 million project was resumed some weeks ago.
Safety measures prevent access to the tower although visitors have continued to climb to the top of the bluff where it is located, attracted by the monument’s views and history.
The town hall has now warned visitors in Spanish, Valencia and English to keep away while work goes ahead on restoring the 16th-century tower, one of the chains that defended Spain’s Mediterranean coast from pirate incursions and enemy raids.
Restoring an adjoining water deposit and excavating a nearby Iberian settlement are included in the Cap d’Or project as well as providing access to the nearby Cendra cave, inhabited 20,000 years ago and considered one of the Mediterranean’s most important prehistoric sites.
