What is Torreta de Guardamar?

February 3, 2018

If you have ever been to, or even passed through Guardamar del Segura, you will have noticed the huge mast structure which overlooks the landscape.

 

Well, this structure is in fact the tallest architectural structure in the European Union.

 

 

 This structure is known as the Torreta de Guardamar or the Torre de los Americanos. The structure stands tall at 370 metres and can be seen from up to miles away in neighbouring towns Torrevieja and Santa Pola.

 

 

The structure was built in 1962 to enable the US Navy to communicate with their submarines in the Mediterranean. The mast is now used by the Spanish Navy in Rota.
