Coastal towers in Southern Spain

There are many watch towers in Southern Spain, all along the coast. I have always thought it would be nice to take a sabbatical and hike or bike from one to the other, reading about their history. Some of them are surrounded by nature, others are situated directly along the road (where it is difficult or impossible to park) or even in town, lost between concrete. Here are four of them, in three different provinces. The most beautiful area is, without hesitation, Caños de Meca, as it is a protected area. And from there, if it is not too foggy, you can see the Rif mountains in Morocco.
