  • The location of this observation tower is very well. It is only 4 story high but the view that you get from there is amazing. At the top they have giving brief outline of the history of the Island Orleans and how farming started in the island. Entire island is worth a drive as you will find hue landscapes throughout the journey in the island. Have a very good journey!!!
