San Pedro Tower and 脕ndito
Built in the XIII century, with an original height of 25 meters, it is the oldest of Teruel鈥檚 Mud茅jar towers.
Typologically, it is built as a tower-gate. The ground floor of the tower opens into a passage that allowed for the movement of priests and potential guards throughout the area surrounding the tower, and illustrates its position as a central part of the city鈥檚 urban network.
The tower has a very Christian structure, in spite of being a Mud茅jar tower, characterized by a single rectangular facade and superimposed detailing.
The tower鈥檚 elegant exterior decoration is typical of Mud茅jar constructions, and features brick and colored tile.
Any visitors who wish may climb to the top of the bell tower. One spiral staircase, and seventy-four stairs, later they are face to face with the bells.
From the tower the walkway is accessible. The walkway is a structural element typical of Mud茅jar architecture and circles the exterior of the church, allowing visitors to appreciate the details on the tower, and on the stained glass that can also be seen within the nave.
