This part of the walls is admired for the handsomely designed tower of Burg El-Zafar that was renovated later by adding a long arrow slit. The interior part of this tower is rectangular in shape and is surmounted by a brick dome and on the right side appears a flight of stairs with nice star carvings on it. There is another gate few meters southward the tower known as El Bab El Gadid or the new gate. The beauty of this gate is accentuated by its bent entrance that was imitated in the religious and architectural buildings later.
