The Prince's tower
The Prince's tower seems to have been given this name
comparatively recently. It is referred to in the 17th and even
18th century as the "blind" tower or the "one after the Saviour".
The origin of its present name is not known. From the outside it
resembles the Court tower although it does not have the same
ornamental band. It had six tiers with the platforms of the first
and third tiers supported by brick vaults. Like the Court tower
it had openings on both sides leading to the battlements. Their
architecture and structure show that the Prince's, Saviour and
Court towers and the stretches of wall adjoining them belong to
the same period. They all date back to the end of the 15th
century and underwent minor changes in the seventeenth.
