You could miss the elephant statue if you aren't looking carefully. We had a guide to point it out. Impressive tower in old city.

This tower was being renovated while we were there. Hence we could not enter but it is in a nice part of the old town and you are still able to see it from the ground.

Currently under renovation and access up the tower is closed to the public. Very impressive tower all the same.

A most interesting city gate house. A truly formidable defence with portcullises and gates. I do not envy unwelcome visitors! Don't miss the small Elephant statue on the outside from which it gains its name.
