It is located three and a half kilometers from Almoharín, within its municipal area, it is accessed by a perfectly signposted rural road, in which we find an old medieval bridge.
Its name - "The Watchtower" -, inherited from the place where it is located, leads us to think about the possibility of a medieval military fortification that would fulfill the function of territorial surveillance in the wide border between the Christian world and the Arab world. The mission of these towers, of undoubted strategic value, was to control any military movement on roads, route crossings, ravines and natural accesses. Faced with a situation of danger, the effectiveness of the watchtower became evident when activating the communication mechanism, based on acoustic or visual signals.
The Rural House "La Atalaya" is surrounded by an impressive landscape in which we contemplate the typical Extremadura pasture and the Sierras de Montánchez and San Cristóbal.
