This is a very well preserved ancient tower, do some research as there is not much info on site and you can only view it from the outside. However its worth a look. It's not easy to find so prepare beforehand.

Nice tower built in the 11th century. It is close to the city center and can be easily missed. So keep and eye our and enjoy this beautiful tower.

A very impressive tower which can be easily missed if you don't look out for it. Unfortunately you can't get inside.

This tower has an ancient flavor being built in the 11 century as a residential tower. It is so close to the city center that a stroll in the old city can easily lead to it. It lost some of its height, but the remaining part is well retained. The interior is really nice.
