The Torres de Serrans were built in the 14th century, 1392, by Pere Balaguer. It was the main entrance to the city and it was originally built with a defensive function. From 1586 until 1887 the towers were used as a prison for nobles.

El conjunto está formado por dos torres poligonales unidas por un cuerpo central donde se abre la puerta propiamente dicha, con forma de arco de medio punto. Es Bien de Interés Cultural desde 1931”
