Photographer's Note

The tower is the Marks other than the remains of the old medieval castle of the family of brands, shaved by Thomas Bohier. It is the dungeon of the old building, and consists of a round tower and a turret housing the stairwell. Thomas Bohier will rehabilitate the tower, giving it a more modern taste in the Renaissance, through the drilling of large mullioned windows and the addition of a steeple. On the side, you can still see the pit, bearing a chimera and an eagle, emblem of Brands.

The tower now houses the gift shop, but the public can not access the summit.
