This monument, in the heart of the medieval village has dominated the sea and history for over two thousand years. Over the years it has been bombarded, dismantled, the stone used to build the church of St Michael, and many of the village houses, but at the beginning of the 20th century it was decided to restore it and it has now found once again some of its previous grandeur. In spite of all it has been subjected to, it has defied time and the elements and it still a magnificent example of Roman architecture.
