The tower, with a square plan, has three floors reachable by an external staircase, which leads to a terrace above, reaching a total height of about fifteen meters. The ground floor, originally the “powder room” (stanza delle polveri) was converted into a cistern for the collection of rainwater. In 1585 the tower was restored by the Florentine architect Camillo Camillani. The tower of Nubia is also nicknamed “Raisi Debbi”, because it was reused as a tuna trap in more recent times.
