The outside walls of the towers still show the effects of
the French attack on the city during the Spanish War
of Independence. On the inside there are ribless vaults
covering the defensive rooms.
The towers were used as a prison in the 19th century,
and today contain a Locksmiths’ Museum and spaces for
special monographic exhibits. Detail of a door to the towers.
