A little out of the way but worth the walk. It was constructed between 1395 to 1400 and stands 37 feet tall. I believe these towers were used as water towers so it is very interesting for those who like medieval construction and architecture. I...More

Amazing how well this medieval town is preserved. The walls around the town stands complete and still serves as fortification of the town. Walk the periphery of the walls and appreciate history and views of the town as well as outside.

Walking along the walls overlooking the old town is really a privilege and a wonderful experience. It offers very many vantage points to enjoy the numerous sights of the old town. It also brings back memories of knights patrolling and fighting for the safety and...More
