The tower is situated on the top of a hill but it is a pleasant walk up to it and the views from there are excellent

We strolled up to the towers one evening, very peaceful. Low level lights all the way to the tower. Lovely views and if you go on a clear night with no moon it is possible to see the milky way.

A lump at the headland of Fornells - worth a stroll (steep but short - good tiled path) - great views. Not open.

Firstly, can I say I haven't been in the Tower - my review is based on the surrounding area. It's well worth the walk up as the views are incredible. But it's worth going to see the Tower and rambling around the area. Just watch your step in places and you'll be fine :-)

It's quite a steep walk in the heat, but the views are worth it. We walked up and saw quite a lightshow at night, when there was a thunderstorm in Marseilles
