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.

La torre, costruita nell'omonima spiaggia del litorale di Quartu, fu eretta dagli spagnoli nel 1578.

Il suo scopo era quello di controllare le coste dagli sbarchi dei saraceni, era controllata da due soldati con armi leggere che intercomunicavano a ovest con la torre di Carcangiolas e a est con quella di S.Andrea, oggi distrutta.

La torre, che si trova a 2m. sul livello del mare, è notevole.
