El Pilar boasts 4 great towers. A modern glass lift has been installed in the Torre Alta de la Ribera (on the corner of Calle Jardiel), which takes visitors to the foot of the spire, where the spire itself can be accessed via a set of stairs. The spire has been converted into a lookout point, duly protected from strong winds which frequently batter the city. From the lookout point, at a height of 80 m, the entire city of Saragossa can be seen. The River Ebro, which practically runs past the foot of the tower, only adds to the wonderful vista.
