Hangman’s Tower

On the north side of town, close to the Graells Gate and just outside the walls, we find the home of the person responsible for carrying out punishment on those that were sentenced. The hangman's image and role made him a social outcast. As a result, he was forced to live outside the community, which is why the Torre del Botxí is close to the town but just outside its walls. It is a rectangular-shaped building with a traditional structure: support walls made of exposed stone, two upper floors, packed earth walls, and a gable roof.
