For just €3, climb the tower in the corner of the walled city and enjoy panoramic views of the valley floor below. It would be nice if a little bit of information about the history of the tower was provided, but for such cheap entry...More

Worth €3 to enjoy the view of the region. You can see Ysios, Eguren Ugarte and many other vineyards. Check the opening times at the local visitor centre ;)

For a small fee you have to climb quite a few stairs until you reach the top of this ancient tower. Inside there is nothing special but the view from the top is nice and far reaching, due to the fact that Laguardia itself is...More
