This second Tower of Ovilla is close to the first. This is a large house which is located next to another fort with similar characteristics and appearance of the Tower. Such is the case that both are attributed to the same owner, Alejandro Vallejo Velasco, who ordered its construction in the second half of the XVIII century. It is a small fort of square floor and masonry, with a single pointed arch window and in each enceinte some loopholes.
