"A tower with a story"

This Mudejar tower, known as the Baño de la Cava, is situated on the left bank of the Tajo River near the San Martín Bridge. Originally built as fortifications, there was also a bridge here until floods destroyed it in 1203. The tower gets its name from a legend. It was here that King Don Rodrigo came upon the Governor of Ceuta's daughter, Florinda de Cava bathing and raped her. In revenge for his daughter's suffering, Don Julián encouraged the Arabs to enter Spain and assisted them in the battle of Guadalete in which the King was killed. This signalled the end of the Visigoth era in Spain and the beginning of eight centuries of Moslem presence in Spain.
