  • Ran to this building today. Great views from the top. The torre is pretty run down and overgrown. You can see inside but not a lot to it.  more »

  • STAKE PORT TOWER Historical and technical report  The tower features and ennobles a large stretch of sea of The beach of Menphi  now entirely villetti.  Location  Camillian tower. Square-based 10.90 m.  Location  It rises above the messy seaside agglomeration of Porto Palo, the beach of  Menphine and dominates a wide stretch of sea  Matches  With the tower of Cape Granitola in the west and Cape S. Mark or the Betrayal at  Levante.  Constructive type  Classic Camillanea type with pyramidal trunk base of 10.90 mt and square-based stem of mt 11.50 x 11.75. It was built on the proposal and design of the Camilliani probably at the turn of the 17th century. On the ground floor are four rooms, one of which is used as a cistern. The outer base wall is 240 cm wide, the inner wall 80 cm wide.  Access to the usual from the opposite side to the sea and to the first floor. Recently restored incompletely as the parapet of the terrace has not been realized, as can be seen from the vintage photos. However, it was necessary to reconstitute the plinth, in conciemics, which protected the masonry. It is assumed that they will take away for reuse in the nearby seaside dwellings. There are some useful for restoration, which should be extended to the attic of the second elevation to avoid the harmful action of the water.  The exterior wall should also be taken up and consolidated while maintaining the existing portions of ancient plaster. It would be necessary to close the rift at ground level with a grate to prevent visitors from using spaces improperly and placing a waterproof explanatory sign.  History  Deputation, but under the control of the Duke of Newfoundland who had an obligation to pay the salary to the gunner and appoint the other two soldiers paid by the Deputation
