La Torre d'en Doménec or La Torre dels Domenges (Spanish: Torre Endoménech) is a small municipality in the province of Castelló, Valencian Community, Spain. The town is located inland close to the mountain range known as Serra d'en Galceran that protects the town from the north wind.

La Torre d'en Doménec is located about 40 km north of the town of Castelló de la Plana, on the north of the Valencian Community. Historically it used to depend from Les Coves de Vinromà and from the year 1319 onwards it was under the protection of the Knights of Montesa. Until the 19th century La Torre d'en Doménec depended from neighboring Vilanova d'Alcolea parish.[1]
