You can see this tower from everywhere. You can visit it also and go on the top but you can also see it from underneath also. It is one of the symbols of Veszprém.

Cool music will play from here. It was free in off season to walk around it. Not sure when they charge if you can actually go in it. Thick castle type wall a foot thick in a couple sides with wood Boardwalk.
