built 500 years ago as a Monumental gate to the city on the water in a beautiful park. There is nothing to see inside so just enjoy walking around.

Looks amazing from the outside but don't go here on a rainy day, it will be closed and seems like the only worthwhile thing to see is the view from the top.

Lots to appreciate when you take into account how old this fortification tower is, its in remarkable condition. Lots of international tourist whizzing around on motorized scooters so keep a wary eye out for them. Lots of selfies being taken.

Historic place with a very beautiful view, the only inconvenience is the unpolited people who jump the queue all the time.

Very significant tower - we got off the 15E tram much earlier and walked along the waterside on a beautiful sunny day. Tickets for inside are Eur 6 or discount 3 so quite pricey - we just enjoyed the view and its locale.
