4 of the 9 towers are open to the public. We climbed 3 of the 4 towers with each tower averaging about 100 steps. And as expected, the upper steps are narrower and harder to negotiate. The views from the top is worth the climb....More

We were eating at the rooftop of Manora Restaurant when we spied these towers. Curious, we asked the manager, Ms Huber, if we could go up there. She gladly told us the way. Thank God for kind people we meet during our travels! When we...More

You can climb the towers and walk the ramparts. One contains a clock, where you can see the workings. There are some signs on the portion closer to the river, but the route is not well marked from the more central portion of town. Great...More
