It is a beautiful tower which we owe to the Angulo family, lineage that stretched from the first half of the XIV century. It was Fernan, grandson of Hernan Sanchez and Maria Lopez de Vivanco, who ordered the building in Cozuela at the end of XVI century. A fortification which you can still visit today, of square ground, to which you can access through a gate of pointed arch, and has another door on the first floor, which is believed, may have been the exit to a balcony.

There are walls, stone paintings, on which narrow windows and hollows of pointed arch are opened; they are highlighted in the South area which has on the coat of arms of their owners. It is a building that still allows us to contemplate the power of the latest Angulo in Spain, before they went to America.
