The Atalaya del Sur del Burgo is a historical example worth seeing for its antiquity and significance. It is a resulting building of the expansion of the counts of Castilla towards South snatching land to the Muslims. New defensive buildings facing the Duero were built as the caliphate to protect themselves from this push. There are some towers that joined the walls, whose aim was the surveillance against the attack. It is a defensive system that is kept in perfect condition in the province of Soria.

The Atalaya of which we are speaking, has a circular floor and walls with the same shape, made with limestone ashlar thickened with lime mortar. The door appears more than three meters of high, on the first floor. It has a door with lintel and over lintel. It is a building of several floors, keeping the top in a worse state. It is a building that if we get together with its similar ones makes up a structure of great tourist attraction.
