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.

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.

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.

A wonderful view of the city from the tower. Although, there are narrow and steep stairs to the top, I recommend it for the view.
