  • A tower that was designed as defensive work in the 14-th century. The gezagshebber in the 16th century the Tower decided to break down, as three other towers around the then port nearby. The port is now muted, and the three towers disappeared. But fortunately the population do not agree with the decision to abort, and the tower was converted to a prison. The cells are still present, even with the carved image in the walls of prisoners. The tower is now a very interesting item, where a lot is told. Oh yes, the prisoners were never longer than 4 weeks .... Because the prison guard did get some money for the prisoners, and therefore more when there were several, but the food and further maintenance of the prisoners, he had to pay out of pocket. He was so clear they'd rather off. Still, highly recommended. But call us with the tourist information of visitors time! Oh yes, you cannot eat or drink. Sorry.
