Historical perspective images have been proved to be very useful to properly provide a dimensional analysis of buildings faç ades or even to generate a pseudo-3D reconstruction based on rectified images of the whole structure. In this paper, the case of Gobierna Tower (Zamora, Spain) is analyzed from a historical single image-based modeling approach. In particular, a bottom-up approach, which takes advantage from the perspective of the image, the existence of the three vanishing points and the

Results were compared with ground truth measurements existing in a historical topographical surveying obtaining deviations of about 1%.
