Plain tower in a back street
Mar 2019 • Friends
Because this huge tower was a defensive structure and part of the city’s original fortifications, it has no decorative features and few windows, which are small. So it looks extremely plain and is away from the busy squares in a quiet back street. There is no plaque on it to identify which tower it is. Its size is impressive, but otherwise its other interesting feature is its name, which many people think refers to sugar, but actually means the Salt Tower and signifies that it was where the then precious commodity was kept safe.
