Very interesting architecture. It looks like a mini castle from the outside with a ramp/walkway through the middle. I don’t think you can go inside the building itself, at least the doors were locked when I was there and I didn’t see any signs indicating...More

Interesting to see but doesn't seem to serve a purpose. There is water on one side which could originally have been part of a canal
