    The 9 watchtowers

    3 of the towers

    In the Plaza de España (Spain's square) you can find 2 typical buildings in one corner:
    - One is called the House of the 5 watchtowers (left on the pic).
    - The other is called the House of the 4 watchtowers (right on the pic, with red designs).

    Both are very close to one another and give you a good opportunity to admire these towers, typical from Cadiz, used by the locals to watch for the coming vessels in the 18-19th centuries.
    Most of other towers are located in narrow streets, so is difficult to see them from below...
