I made a special trip to Maia and was disappointed the observation tower was closed on a Sunday. The outside of the building is missing a huge piece of siding and looks pretty tired. My guess the inside might need some work as well.

Imponent architecture, Maia ex libris is located next to the city hall and it's worth a visit to the higher levels.
