Torre de Quatrim



Torre de Quatrim

 

A presente cache faz parte de um conjunto de 3 caches associadas a Torres/Fortalezas, existentes no Concelho de Olhão.


Esta Torre terá, possivelmente, desempenhado funções de habitação de um dos primeiros senhores cristãos encarregues do senhorio e povoamento desta zona (segunda metade do século XIII, inícios do século XIV).1328 é a data provável da construção, por D. Dinis, segundo lápide outrora existente (actualmente desaparecida) na face Sul.
Implantada num espaço rural encontra-se isolada na margem da ribeira de Quelfes. De planta quadrangular está em avançado estado de degradação. No entanto, é ainda perceptível vestígios dos apoios dos pisos em madeira, dos orifícios e grágulas e de um friso que ornamenta a parte superior da antiga torre de vigia. Fazia parte de um grupo de estruturas militares que vigiavam a costa algarvia.
