The climb, which includes c200 stone steps, is not for the faint hearted or clumsy-footed. The construction of the tower started somewhere between 1425-1439 and wasn’t completed until c1510-1520, nearly hundred years later.

With my camera set to one it pre-programmed settings – toy camera shooting mode – it enabled me to capture a set of pictures as if taken with “toy” or pinhole camera.
