St Nicolas Tower

Recommended
This slightly leaning tower (total height 42 m) is a veritable fortress. It was built in the 14C and named after the patron saint of navigators. An external staircase leads to the main room, from which other staircases lead to additional rooms. These rooms have plans, models and dioramas showing how the site has evolved with time.
