The building is a superb example of 16th Century vernacular architecture. It was built in stone, but the first and second-floor windows, as well as the door, stand out from its plain façade, and the arrow slits on the top floor are a reminder of its defensive function.
The interior of the building is very impressive with its narrow stone stairs and vaulted ceilings. You will see two French-court fireplaces and the magnificent pebblestone floors with plant motifs and designs in filigree.
Inside there is an interesting exhibition that traces the history of the building from the 16th Century using illustrations, models, objects and audio-visual displays. The exhibition explains the geographic, architectural and historic context that existed when the tower was built.
