Bell tower and Ermita de la Soledad (Soledad Chapel)

The tower that serves as a bell tower is far away from the Church of the Virgen de las Nieves, climbing on a nearby promontory from where it dominates the view of the town. It was built in Molinos in the 19th century. The first body of the square tower is made of masonry and ashlar masonry and was part of a medieval defensive tower, probably of the Calatrava Castle. The second body and the body of bells are of brick and octagonal plan.

Nearby is the hermitage of the Virgen de la Soledad, at the end of the so-called path of the Via Crucis.

Simple construction at the foot of which there is a small linteled porch. Access is through a lowered arch. Externally, the great polygonal dome, made entirely of brick, stands out. It also has an octagonal tower and a gabled roof.

At the access to this hill there is a wall arch that may have been part of the fortification.
