Abstract: On the border between the ancient garb al-Andalus and sharq al-Andalus lies the Segura de la Sierra valley (Jaén, Spain), an area in which the medieval ways from Seville and Granada came together on the way to the east of the Iberian Peninsula. Given its strategic position and fertile orography, during the 11th and 12th centuries, Saqura became an important Islamic cora (administrative division of al-Andalus). A complex system of towers still remains from this era, built using the rammed earth construction technique. With the aim of delving further into this rich heritage, the research project #ProyectoSegura is being carried out, designed to obtain details that provide more information about the implementation criteria, chronological dating, and construction techniques used by applying a methodology based on the use of new technologies. The description of this work process and the presentation of the main results are the contributions of this communication
