The walls of the ancient Hipponion Varchi colony have both small and large gates from which flowed the most significant axes of communication between the urban sector and the suburban areas. The section of Greek wall that can be visited, which is about 500 metres long, seems to be the one that surrounded the city on the northeast side, and it has been subjected to five phases of construction over more than two hundred years. Four mighty external towers with square bases protrude from the line of the Greek wall. The enclosure was further defended by a moat that was about four metres wide, but which is no longer visible today. In the fifth and last construction phase (during the first half of the third century BC), which took place almost contemporary to the previous phase, a stretch of about 280 metres of west wall was added. This was interspersed with four cylindrical towers that have an exit door and stairs to access an upper level.
