During the Early Middle Ages, the Castle of Osma was built on a hill that can be seen from a Roman watchtower. This watchtower is located where the ancient Celt settlement once was, in Alto del Castro.

On the highest part of the Uxama archaeological site, there is a 10th-century Muslim watchtower built in ashlar, although the foundational ashlar stones are most likely Roman. It contains part of a Roman column and remains of jambs which are the only parts left of the entryway. Inside there are about six metres in diameter and the walls are only ten centimetres thick. From this watchtower, you can see the Lomero Watchtower, El Burgo de Osma and Quintanilla de Tres Barrios.

Visit: free.
