Torre di Piscinni (Teulada Sardegna)

Torre di Piscinni (Teulada Sardegna)



Piscinni tower, built in 1595 on a promontory, stands out both for its size and for its strategic importance, as it was monitoring the approach to the valley and the lake of the same name, used by Peter Port as fish stocks.
In the Spanish era, the tower was strengthened and protected by a garrison army.

This is a dive site.

La tour Piscinni, construite en 1595 sur un promontoire, se distingue autant pour ses dimensions que pour son importance stratégique, car elle devait surveiller l'approche dans la vallée et le lac du même nom, utilisés par Peter Port comme réserves de poissons.
A l'époque espagnole, la tour a été renforcée et protégée par une garnison armée.

C'est un site de plongée.

Torre di Piscinni (Teulada Sardegna)
La torre di Piscinnì, costruita nel 1595 su un promontorio, si distingue sia per le dimensioni costruttive che per l’importanza strategica, poiché doveva sorvegliare sia l'approdo verso la valle retrostante e lo stagno omonimo, sfruttato da Pietro Porta come riserva ittica.
In epoca spagnola la torre fu rinforzata e protetta da un presidio armato.

E' un sito di immersione.
