Ascended in two stages with no passing places on the spiral staircase. One spiral goes up and another comes down. Highest point in the area, there are views in every direction.

Amazing place to get a great view of the town and great architecture too. When the bell rings, it's too loud so you need to protect your ears.

Accessible via the museum, at an extra cost of two euros on top of the museum admission price but worth it for the views from the top. Plenty of steps to climb which will not suit some people.
