Torre dell'Orso

An ancient watchtower against the Turks' incursions, Torre dell'Orso lies in the eponymous Marina of Melendugno and silently scans the horizon, breathing in the scent of salt air and the breeze from the nearby pine forest. Although its conservation is not in an optimal state, it still presents the typical construction of the sixteenth century. With a square base, it has three machicolations per side and a truncated pyramid body without counterscarp. The tower, recently restored, is, however, devoid of the north-east and south-west side, and dominates the bay of Torre dell'Orso with its long white beach on which stand the stacks of the Two Sisters.
