The eastern side of the fortress was independent and could be defended separately. Part is seen in this detailed view. In the section between the unnamed tower and the Corrado Chikalo tower there were four loopholes in 30 meters. A series of loopholes were built in the fortress wall. In case the lower defensive wall was penetrated and the enemy gained entrance to the open space, fire from the Corrado Chikalo tower and the opposite Consul's castle (above and behind us in the photo) (110 meters off) could cover this area.
