In the yard of the Archeological Museum there are two towers, one of which is the only surviving tower of the great defensive complex that once protected the city. It was built in the 3rd century AD, and afterwards when it lost its purpose it was transformed into a chapel of the monastery of Saint Maurizio. This is why there are still visible frescos from the 13th and 14th century inside the tower.
