César Tower (Tour César) Tours

Tour César is a dungeon tower built in the late 1100s upon the orders of Henri 1st the count of Champagne. The tower, which is the only known square-based octagonal dungeon tower, used to be part of a larger fortress developed by the English army during the Hundred Years’ War siege of Provins. The tower was also used as a watchtower and belfry; out of the six bells it used to have, only one remains.
