The visit to the Tower starts from the outside, on the steps in front of it. The base of the building is decorated with rhinos.
Above there are two statues, On the right the statue of the Archangel Michael and on the left the Saint Vincent, the saint of the city.
On the fourth floor stands the balcony with the curtains and a cross of the Order of Christ.
Through the corridor the visitor reaches the suspension bridge. The bridge along with the guillotine gate made access more difficult for intruders.
Entering from the bridge and the main entrance you are inside the handrail that houses the artillery of the Tower, with 17 cannon positions. The floor is sloping down to drain the water that enters the Tower.
In the center is a small open patio, surrounded by Gothic columns. It served as a means of dissolving smoke from cannon fire. Before going up, go out on the roof to see the main facade of the tower.
The rooms of the tower include the room of the governor, the king, the public and a chapel.
