In the corner of the square of Bocos is what the neighbours call ‘La Torre’, which belonged to the Medinilla and in its day was called ‘Torre del Campo’.

Today, the small fort is now housing, losing some of its original appearance. It still retains the four blocks of limestone from the corners of the house and part of a buttress of cubic profile on its façade, as well as two windows of loophole, already extended. It is a Tower rebuilt in the XVIII century that we can still contemplate today as a reminder of what it was.
