Great Coastal Gate and Fat Margaret's Tower were built to protect the city from the seaside, but also to impress quests arriving by sea. The Great Coastal Gate (built at the same time with the city wall) is located in the northern part of the Old Town of Tallinn near the port.

In the 16th century, during the reconstruction of the gate, the Fat Margaret's artillery tower was built nearby.
 

Today, the Fat Margaret houses Estonian Maritime Museum. The Museum exhibits a remarkable collection of ship models from different eras. The viewing platform on the roof of the tower offers a view over the Old Town and the Bay of Tallinn. In the summer, the only rooftop café in the Tallinn Old Town is open there.
