The Seaside District and Mola's Tower

The seaside district, also known as Rione Mola by the people of the city, is a neighbourhood where the life of fishermen is still made. The streets of the district are home to large palaces, shops and oil mills and the activities mainly carried out in this area of the city are the traditional commercial and craft activities. The central point of the district is the Tower of Mola, an ancient Angevin tower built in 1200. It is the only intact testimony of the bombings of World War II that hit the city. It has an irregular hexagonal shape with the interior divided into three rooms where today the city's historical archive resides. To access it you cross a portal of the sixteenth century.
