We were staying in Fornells this summer so took the opportunity to visit the Tower which I had have not been to before one afternoon. The Tower is intact and because it has all its internal partitions and stairs laid out as they were in times of action, it is very interesting. The young guide inside was happy to chat... More

Quite an interesting venue if you take a short but very pretty walk along the waterfront from the town centre. Formells is well woth a visit with plenty of places to both eat and drink. Some say that this village is one of the most attractive on the Island and who am I to disagree

Nice walk from Fornells town up a small incline. Interesting place to visit but there is an entry charge! Nice to see some history in a modern resort. There are also remains of a fort in Fornells with some interesting displays giving the history of the place.

Tower is only open a few short hours a day and you need a car to get to the place! Unless you like a very good walk from the town. It costs 2.20 euros and although thats cheap its one we wish we'd not bothered with.

I went here with my family earlier this year, we all loved Fornells tower. The views from outside the tower were fantastic. It is a good place to visit if you like history and like to learn about the islands culture.
