Maiden Tower, Baku

4.2
Part of the World Heritage-listed ancient walled city, Maiden Tower remains one of nation's most distinctive emblems. Built on a solid rock foundation in the 12th century, the majestic 29.5 m (96 ft) tower seamlessly blends Persian, Arabic, and Ottoman architectural influences into one. Its massive foundations plunge 15 m (49.2 ft) below ground and may date back as far as the 4th century CE. Explore the mysterious eight-story structure, which houses a water well, an observation deck at the top, and a museum containing many relics and stories of the city's evolution throughout history. The tower also contains shops and cafes. Take a look at our Baku tour app to schedule your visit to Maiden Tower and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
