"Defensive tower" Top 5 Page for this destination Defensive tower near Basilians monastery Tip by Raimix


Only not long time ago I saw this huge tower, only one of many remained from defensive structure of old Vilnius. Alike Italian style, but bigger. It has holes for artillery. Pity, not at real reconstructed, but maybe someday will be available to go up and see inside and view from the top.

Address: Ausros Vartu st. 7
Directions: Going to Gate of Dawn
