Description
The small dovecot tower, isolated in the territory, has a stone structure and four-layered roof made of roof tiles.
Two linear dovecot borders spread along the sides.
On the corners there are glazed tiles to prevent rodents from climbing up.
The structure belongs to the XVII century.
These "small vineyard towers" would usually have just a single room t shelter people and equipment during seasonal work.
The attic functions as a dovecot and in this case is characterized by a double supporting cornice.
