This is a large tower next to the 5 wells that you can enter and climb to the top. It definitely has a great view to see Zadar and to take photos.

If you are near the 5 well plaza, you will see this beautiful tower, I didn't climb up it, but the masonry work is very good. Well worth the wander thru to see it.

Lot of steps and a great view. Cheap enter fee and worth the climb. Try to go in morning before it gets hot and all the tourist show up.

This tower is actually more interesting than the 5 wells that brought us to this side of town. The tower is attached to remains of the old town wall. The tower has an odd 5-sided shape which makes it interesting
