  • Initially it was a defensive tower and gate to the city. In 1405, after a fire destroyed clock tower, one was added to it. This tower subsequently was where prisoners were interrogated and housed.  more »

  • A less elaborate clock Tower that used to be the 2nd City gate. Beside it are alot of shops and the parliament Building. GREAT place to eat and do people watch
  • Excellent location. Nice seating arrangement. Not a very big hall but good enough .
