This medieval donjon, Caesar’s Tower, located in the UNESCO World Heritage town of Provins, was probably built during the reign of Henry the Liberal (1152-1183), but a tower has occupied the location since 1137. The base of the donjon is square leading to an octagonal upper section with four turrets flanking the donjon.
