Overview
More
The tower of Ribes Roges was built in the last third of the 19th century as a defensive element to protect the Maritime Quarter from potential attack, by sea or by land, of the troops of Carlists or bandits, and is the only survivor of the three that were on the coastline. In the year 2000 the artist Josep Guinovart (1927-2007) transformed the old watchtower of the promenade into a tribute site to seafarers and to the sea itself: at the first floor, legends and stories about the sea; at the second floor, a rope-structure with a set of fishing knots, symbol of the hard work of fishermen and sailors; at the third floor, the artists who found their inspiration in the sea; and at the roof, a view on the real sea of Vilanova i la Geltrú.

Thank you! The Torre Blava opens during the summer and some few days along the year because of its location on the promenade, which has more activity during the summer months. Hope you enjoyed the history inside the Torre Blava ;)

A visit to this little tower is very interesting, because it gives you an art experience, a bit of local history, a bit of local legends and a very nice view from the roof at the same time. Of course it's best if you speak...More
