We are talking about one of the oldest towns of its alfoz (a group of villages). Sarracin was already mentioned in the Carturlario of Cardeña of the year 963. The town preserves in the highest part of its urban centre a typical Tower of the XV century, of quadrangular floor and made with masonry thickened with mortar and stones in corners and hollows. Three floors of height, the gateway is oriented to the South and presents a pointed arch. In 1565 the tower belonged to the Barahona and then to the Salamanca.

It is one more fort that invites us to discover its beauty and that of all its nearby contemporary fellows.
