Research shows that Santa Sabina, along the coast of Carovigno, was used as small port already during Roman time. The area, popular among pilgrims, travelers and merchants, was attacked by pirates and Saracens, and for this reason it was necessary to build a watchtower.

Once it was destroyed, during the works to fortify the coast, it was rebuilt in the Sixteenth century half mile away from the original position. There are no traces of the first building, while the most recent ones, with the shape of a star, has been used as private house. It is almost eleven metres high and has the typical features of a defensive tower.
