Quart Towers
València

Since mid-1400 rise in Valencia these imposing towers which allowed to cross the medieval wall to reach the city by the west, along the road that came from the village of Quart de Poblet.

Its appearance reflects its involvement in various wars, and you can still see the traces of impacts caused by the gunfire of the War of Independence after the Napoleonic invasion.

After shooting down the walls of the city in 1865 these towers were left standing, along with the Torres de Serrano, as a final testament.

Today, they are currently engaged between the ancient and the modern city.
