The Torre del Baró or del Sol de la Vila (Baron’s or Sun Tower), known in the fourteenth century as the Torre d’en Beixa (Beixa’s Tower), is one of the most imposing in the complex due to its commanding position at the Portal d’Avall (Bottom Gate). Its more modern name, Baron’s Tower, comes from the attached house of the Barons de la Montoliva, from Vilallonga. Their relationship with La Selva can be seen with Pau de Magrinyà, who in 1723 became a town councillor.
