Similar to the Torre del Elefante, this tower was built in early 14th century. Part of old city fortifications, nowadays under renovation works thus cannot be visited inside.

It was completed in 1305 and is built on the city's highest point in the Old Town. One cannot climb the tower.

OK, look at the tower, but then check out the nearby Porte de San Pancrazio, which is one of the fortified city gates that is still standing. Now it functions as a short tunnel for cars to enter the old city.

Worth visiting it, just to get a sense of old centuries and history behind this tower. It is really impressive.

Walked through on one our city walks. A nice area and nice tower similar to the elephant tower. Did not go in so can't speak for the views from the top.

This tower was used as a port gate and prison for locals who came to work in the markets in the Spanish Quarter (when Sardinia was under Spanish Rule). If they stayed after the horn sounded they were locked up as they were not allowed...More

You cannot climb this tower but it tells the tale of boundaries defended. It is now part of the castle district. If you want to walk up this type of tower look to the elephant tower ... but don't be susceptible to vertigo.
