Photographer's Note

The tower of San Marco lies on the homonymous promontory at about one km from the tower of S. Giovanni, (see my previously posted photo “Sinis”) few metres from the sea, it defended the ancient landing-place of San Marco, a military harbour in medieval times. It was built in 1585-90 and it’s life was short, because it was replaced by the near tower of S. Giovanni.


La torre di S. Marco è situata sul promontorio omonimo a circa un km a sud dalla torre di S. Giovanni (visibile nella mia precedente foto sul Sinis), a pochi metri dal mare, difendeva l’antico approdo di S. Marco, già porto militare in epoca medievale. Venne costruita nel 1585-90 ed ebbe vita breve dato che fu rimpiazzata dalla vicina torre di San Giovanni.
