The Tour de la Reine is the royal villa that was built in the place of a previous tower. The building depicts gothic style and was replicated according to Ηochenschwangau in Bavaria where Otto was born.

The two buildings share a lot in common, despite their significant difference in size. External similarities include features (polygonal towers, ramparts, arched windows). The portal of the entrance, and some of the interior is also very close. Even the spaces inside, the furniture, and the small ornaments resemble.

The architect of the Tower still remains unknown, although there is a possibility that it is the work of Francois Florimond Boulanger or of Theophil von Hansen.
