La Torre Nubia by klapouch La Torre Nubia by klapouch
Riserva Naturale Integrale Saline di Trapani e Paceco
Trapani - Sicilia - Italia

This is the "Nubia Tower". One of the 150 watch towers built by the Viceroy of Sicilia in 1584, to alert neighbouring towers and towns impending attacks of Turkish barbarian incursions by flashing mirrors, and at night, via fireworks.
