The walls are about 2.6 metres wide. Regarding the towers, two of them are well known and so is the location of two others, which is shown on the sides of the current entrance to the enclosure. In the middle of the east wall and protruding from it is the keep. The plan is almost square and it is just over 20 metres tall.
