In medieval times, the Virgin’s Tower was used as a jail for prostitutes. The tower was built in the second half of the 14th century, at the same time as the town wall. The Virgin’s Tower has been seriously damaged several times and been rebuilt several times.

Relative to other places of interest, this one is very low on the list. Two of the floors are places to eat!

This tower is located towards the end of Epping Tower - which is on the north side of the Old city. Tourist could walk on top of the wall which is linked to this tower.

This was a great tower to find because it's up on a hill so you get even better views from the top! We recommend it, and remember your camera!

This is a lovely part of the old town walls where there are several eerie statues of hooded monks. Its on one of the steep routes from the lower town to Toompea.

This is a neat square, albeit very small and an opportunity to climb narrow stairs up the wall to a restaurant. Statues in the square are dark and eerie. There is a concession cart selling bird food. Great views over the surrounding the town wall...More
