The Tower of la Merced belonged to the former Convent of la Merced, being the only architectural remnant that remains of it. The original building was completely destroyed by the earthquake that struck Rota in 1722.

The current Tower, built in its place, is square at its bottom and octagonal at the top, crowned with the form of a half orange, and appears clad in bright blue and white tiles.
