It has an octagonal base crowned by decorative crenellations. It was joined to the city walls by an arch that still exists to this day. There are several memorial stone tablets with many inscriptions that lie beneath the arch that inform us of the building's date.

A series of steps lie at one end leading to the top floor which has magnificent views of the city.
