Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Located in the historic centre of Santillana del Mar is this Gothic tower, named for Merino Mayor de las Asturias de Santillana, the King’s representative, back in the day. So nothing to do with the fine wool product.

The tower is made of masonry block with quoining corners. Arrow slits and battlements testify to its original defensive purpose. The building is now a private residence with conversions visible even from the exterior. I’d hate to have to climb to the top floor if I lived in the house.

You will see this tower at the “Plaza de mercado”, today they call this location “Ramón Pelayo”, they thinks that the tower is being built into the XIV century, and is called like this due to the farm of the representative of the king in that time. It is almost completely original, just suffered a few transformations.

The Merino Tower, also known as La Torrona, is a Gothic construction with battlements located between the civil square - the former market square, today Ramón Pelayo de Santillana del Mar (Cantabria, Spain) and Lindas Street, probably elevated at the end from the 13th century, and renovated in certain aspects in the 14th and 15th centuries; others point to the 14th century as the original date of construction
