Ypres Tower Review

Down the hill past Church Square, Ypres Tower was originally built as part of the town's fortifications (now all but disappeared) in 1249; it later served as a prison. The stone chambers hold a rather random collection of local items, such as smuggling bric-a-brac and shipbuilding mementos. A row of defensive cannons are fixed to the rampart, which used to overlook the sea.
