  • One of the city gates from the Ancient City wall, dating back to 1392. For a few euros you can climb the tower and get a beautiful view of the city.  more »
  • The gateway stands in a large cleared area so you can appreciate the size and grandeur of it. I think it cost €2 to climb to the top - the stairs are wide and straight so no worries about spiral staircases. The views from the top are impressive and the whole building is a tribute to the restoration work. It is just 5 minutes walk from the cathedral and well worth a visit.
  • A cool tower/gate to visit. Its a beautiful place. You can go up and see the view, not really worth paying though, there wasn't anyone checking at the entrance... Hint... Hint...
