- This monumental gate (just to the left of the Municipal House) dates from 1475 and was rebuilt at the end of the 19th Century. Renovated in the mid-1990s, the gold fixtures stand out brilliantly against the tower, now darkened to a coal gray from years of exposure to the elements. Originally used for storing armaments and gunpowder and to guard the entrance to the Old Town, it is now one of only two such towers remaining from the original thirteen. Inside is a small historical exhibition that traces the architecture of the building over the centuries. The tower is open from April to October.
