  • This is the iconic spot in the city, on the waterfront with these very old towers that have long guarded the entrance to the city. So definitely walk here and linger and take a photo.  more »
  • Very interesting tour to all three towers. You don't have to visit all three in one day either. They all provide some history as well as great views from the top.  more »
