Pilar de la Horadada
Pilar de la Horadada, just outside the Lo Romero Golf Resort, is a hospitable and relaxing part of the region. In Roman times it was a well known route for the travellers moving from the Mediterranean Coast to Rome. Also known as Thiar by the Romans, this town is located between Elche and Cartagena. Also near the Lo Romero Golf Resort there is a rich coastline where plenty of boats enjoy their activities, and as a strategic coast region, it was known to enhance the interest of pirates in historic times. And for this reason, there are three guard towers that are still conserved: One of them:”Torre Horadada” (Perforated Tower): named after the holes connecting the different levels of its construction that allow better communication between the many lookouts inside.
Nowadays, Pilar de la Horadada conserves parts of its history within the walls of the museum Museo Municipal Arqueológico-Etnológico Gratiniano Baches. Visit it or walk around looking for the church Nuestra Señora del Pilar or Nuestra Señora de la Asunción or just enjoy a wonderful promenade until arriving at Torre Vigía, declared a Good of Cultural Interest.
