Historical Info

The tower was part of a group of three towers built in the village of Panza in defense against attacks by pirates. It was built opposite the church of S. Leonardo to offer refuge to the inhabitants of the center, which he financed the building. Of the other two towers, one called "Zi Palmuntè" near Casa Polito and the third house in the village square Migliaccio, only ruins remain. Other towers were built and refuge on the outskirts of the village, a town in the Battle House, another on the way to suck. The tower has undergone many changes and renovations, especially the first and second floor, making it difficult to identify. It now houses a bar and a private residence on the first and second floor.
