Arabic minaret of Daimalos

Monuments and Art > Minaret and Mosque

Dated from the 13th century, this belfry is part of a Christian temple, which was originally an Arab prayer tower, and became the bell tower of the Church of Our Lady of the Conception. The minaret is one of the oldest in Spain, much older than those of the neighbouring municipalities of Árchez, Corumbela and Salares. The interior of the minaret is very narrow, as it only allowed the passage of the muezzin. The Andalusian Government has declared it Good of Cultural Interest in 2004.
