The Crawford Tower is a communication and defensive outpost which has been built in 1500. This building, named after the famous US writer Lord Francis Marion Crawford, dominates the Bay of San Nicola Arcella.

The Tower is structured on two levels, connected by a grand staircase and it was suitable to accommodate small garrisons.

The Crawford Tower, like the towers of Fiuzzi and Maratea, was part of a widespread system which aim was to target enemies approaching the coast.
