Descripción

The medieval tower of Olmos and the tower of Villaute are similar in their structure. Built in the beginnings of the fifteenth century, it belonged to the Hurtado de Mendoza family and afterwards to the Velasco family. It has four floors, machicolations and battlements and it maintains some of the original windows. Several changes have transformed it through the centuries, although it was declared Historic Monument in 1949.
