It is located in Villalazara, village already documented in the XI century; it belonged to Mr Nuño and the family Velascos at the middle of XIV century, and then to the family Fernandez de la Ribera. Later it was to the Bustamente, family who built the tower.

It is a tower raised in the XVI and XVII centuries, next to the parish church. With a quadrangular floor, it was built with masonry of limestone ashlars, with ashlars in the corners and openings. It has windows protected, oriented to the South and East. The gateway, in the South, is emblazoned and framed by two pilasters.
