The tower on the northwestern corner of the old town looks like an illustration in a fairy-tale book. Its purpose, however, was more sad and cruel than romantic: it served as prison for "witches", or better: poor innocent souls who were accused of witchcraft and forced to confess by torture.
No real witch capable of doing magic would have let herself imprison in such a tower by non-magical people...

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
