Σε πρώτο πλάνο ο Πύργος της Αλύσεως (Αλυσίδας, λανθασμένα αποδοσμένος ως Πύργος Τριγωνίου). Τον συναντάμε ως Τζιντζιρλή-Κουλέ (Πύργος της Αλυσίδας) ή Κουσακλή-Κουλέ (Ζωσμένος Πύργος). Μαζί με τον Λευκό Πύργο και τον Πύργο του Βαρδαρίου, αποτελούσαν τα ισχυρότερα οχυρά που έφτιαξαν οι Τούρκοι, προκειμένου να ενισχύσουν κρίσιμα σημεία της βυζαντινής οχύρωσης. Αποτελεί τμήμα του παλαιοχριστιανικού τείχους της Ακρόπολης. Είναι ένα μνημείο από φέρουσα τοιχοποιία που κτίστηκε τον 15ο αιώνα μ.Χ. για οχυρωματικούς λόγους.

In the foreground the Tower of the Chain (mistakenly said as Tower of Triangles). Also known as Tzintzirli Koule (Tower Chain) or Kousakli-Kule (Belted Tower). Along with the White Tower and the Tower of Vardar were the strongest forts built by the Turks in order to reinforce critical points of the Byzantine fortifications. It is part of the early Christian wall of the Acropolis. It is a monument of masonry built in the 15th century AD for fortification purposes.
