The Corsavell tower, next to the Sant Martí church, was probably the residence to the gentlemen of the town, members of the local nobility. It is a building with a rectangular floor plan that has large loopholes on the façade. The voussoir door is located to the south. The interior was divided into two floors with large Roman archways. The later years, the entire interior structure was ruined and the medieval elements destroyed. The Corçavell tower continues being an exceptional example of a Romanesque dwelling from the 12th or 13th centuries, important due to the lack of preserved buildings of this type.
