The walls of the city are no longer visible, only two towers remained, the Gunpowder tower and the Tanner tower. The Gunpowder tower was built in 1552 and as its name suggests it had been used for storing the gunpowder. The tower made part of one nearby gate, with its crass, relatively inferior height, cylinder shape. Its strong walls are full with loopholes.
