Tower of the Winds Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

The Tower of the Winds, built under Julius Caesar, owes its name to the eight winged characters, symbolising the dominant winds of Athens, sculpted on its eight sides. Note Boreus, the cold wind, preparing to blow into a conch, and the gentle Zephyr, letting flowers fall from his cloak. The tower also housed both a weather vane and hydraulic clock.
