During the survey campaign of the TOVIVA research project “Torres de vigía y defensa del litoral valenciano. Generación de metadatos y modelos 3D para su interpretación y efectiva puesta en valor,” many of these towers have been digitally surveyed using 3D laser scanner, and terrestrial and aerial photogrammetry. The survey campaign took place in April 2015 and after gathering the data, a phase of elaboration has successfully produced the architectural drawings of plans, elevations and sections. A part of this documentation has been collected on the poster "When an isolated building becomes a guideline for the urban pattern. The case of “Torrenostra” in Torreblanca, Castellón, Spain", by T. G. Piqueras S. Giraudeau and A. Leonardi in 2015. In this case we want to present an evolution of the work, aiming to reconstruct the original landscape around it. Although today the tower is surrounded by other buildings on both sides, the situation was different in the past, when the tower was isolated on the coast. Rediscovering the original landscape of the city could be a topic of interest and discussion in the Museum of the Territory of Torreblanca. This could take place inside the tower and explain to visitors the history of the territory and its evolution, involving the structure of the tower itself, changing its shape and value. The 3D reconstruction, both digital and tangible, is also a good way to involve children and adults alike, adding a special value to a historical building.
