Tower of Franco (Frankenturm)

The tower of Franco, named so after its 14th century owner and inhabitant Franco von Senheim, was built in the 11th century "in a fashion typical of the Roman era, that is, alternating layers of cut stone and bricks" (see also here).

You can see the mini version of the tower I showed you yesterday at the front left corner of the original.
