Rising up like a mediaeval skyscraper, the Mirador del Rei Martí is named after a king who died in 1410 AD. The tower, however, is of a much later construction, completed 1555 AD. Historians are uncertain why the tower was named after a king who had died over a century earlier, but came to the conclusion that it might have replaced an earlier tower with the same name. The Mirador is adjacent to the Palau Reial Major (royal palace).
