It is close to the train station and on the way in or out is worth a detour, it is also in walking distance from the roman ruins and can be included on a historical tour of the city. The building is impressive and the tale behind it is a good one. I would not tell it as many have... More

Legends apart from that are told about this tower does not seem like the most beautiful attraction in the city. It is a simple and ancient tower which rises in the middle of traffic, as I said, personally I wasn't looking for it I just found it walking the streets of the city. It is a waste of time, because...
