THE SECOND phase of a series of urgent repair and renovation works are being carried out on the famous tower in La Mata.

Repair work began after the series of storms in December last year and in January and March of this were found to have seriously disabled the historic structure and there was a fear it would collapse.

Along with the Torre del Moro in Torrevieja, the tower in La Mata has held a special protection status and repair work started in June for a planned period of three months.  However, there have been some contractual issues with the company that were responsible for the work and there has been a need to find a replacement.  The overall budget set for the repair is €350,000.

The aim of the project is to recreate the original look of the La Mata tower that was restored by the council in the 1990s.
