La tour, construite sur la plage homonyme, sur la côte de Quartu, a été construite par les Espagnols en 1578.

Son but était de contrôler les débarquements des Sarrasins sur la côte. Elle était surveillée par deux soldats avec des armes légères qui communiquaient à l'ouest avec la tour Carcangiolas et à l'est avec celle de Saint-André, aujourd'hui détruite.

La tour, qui s'élève à 2 m. dessus du niveau de la mer, est remarquable.
