Medieval sighting tower Medieval sighting tower in Salento. Building of cultural historical prestige, located in the heart of Morciano di Leuca. In Vico Torri, in the heart of the historical centre of Morciano di Leuca, just 4 km from the beautiful sea of Torre Vado, Salento Agency is pleased to present the sale of this magnificent Medieval SightingTower, unique in its kind and one of the few for sale throughout the Salento territory. The Tower was the fulcrum of the fortress of the district Torri, a real curtain fortified by civil houses, useful to defend itself from the attacks of the Saracens. The property faces three sides on the municipal road while on one side it is bordered by other buildings. The entrance is from Vico Torri, through a beautiful portal that allows the access to the courtyard/garden, shared with a second property. The open area is enclosed by high walls in tuff and stone, surmounted by architectural elements in tuff. In front of the entrance portal, on the ground floor, there is a large room with a ‘a stella’  vault with an ancient fireplace and a smaller room that in the past was used for storing food. Adjacent to these two rooms, there are the old stables of which it is still possible to see the mangers, characterized by a single room with a ‘a botte’ vault. The total surface area of the ground floor is about 65 square meters. The first floor: The first floor is accessible from an external staircase located on the right of the entrance portal. Arriving at the top of the staircase you reach a large terrace which is in fact the roof of one of the two rooms on the ground floor. From here, a little further to the left, there is a room with a collapsed roof, whose roof was on the ground, with wooden beams and ancient tiles. On the right of the terrace opens the door of one of the most beautiful pearls of Salento. A magnificent room with a ‘a botte’ vault, a real architectural masterpiece. On the wall to the left of the entrance there is an ancient fireplace while on the side walls of the room there are niches carved in the thickness of the walls. An internal staircase leads to the roof of this wonderful room and from here you can admire the old town, until you see the sea. Beautiful is the Renaissance frame, which encloses the window of this room, as well as the string (the rounded cord) that detaches the foot of the tower from the room on the first floor. What about the storm drain above the tower? The total covered area of the two rooms at the first, not communicating with each other, is 60 square meters. There is an approved partial restructuring project. The sale here is related to the entire medieval tower.
