"The Tower" redirects here. For the tower in Chinatown, see Towering Pagoda.
The Tower is a large and ominous-looking building in St. Mystere in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. Professor Layton and Luke can't access it until finding a key shaped similarly to the tower and solving at least 75 puzzles.

After meeting the requirements, it can be reached by taking the northernmost path from the market and passing through the tower road and the dead end. The tower has 8 levels and a basement.



Professor Layton and the Curious VillageEdit

In the Tower
When Professor Layton and Luke first enter the tower, the ground below them collapses, and they fall through into the basement. It is in here that Bruno repairs the robot residents of St. Mystere, which causes the rumbling that annoys them. He tells them the truth of the villagers, but urges the two to find out the truth of the Golden Apple for themselves by climbing the tower.

When Professor Layton and Luke reach the top of the tower, they find a beautifully kept cottage. The player then has the choice of entering the cottage, or heading back down to the village to explore more. If the player picks the first option, they are met with the final cutscenes of the game.

and glasses to reveal herself as Flora Reinhold, the baron's missing daughter. Luke is shocked at this, and Professor Layton explains that she is the Golden Apple everyone had searched for.

three try to use the stairs to evacuate the tower, but a gap in the staircase created by the destruction is only crossed by Luke, who manages to leap on the rubble to the other end. Professor Layton tells him to go on ahead, and he and Flora climb back up the tower.

Professor Layton fashions a makeshift glider and flies out with Flora in tow. Don Paolo draws closer to them, but Layton swerves the glider out of the way, damaging something in Don Paolo's contraption in the process. The villain drops a canvas bag holding Simon, and swears his revenge as Professor Layton and Flora fly to safety. Shortly afterward the player watches the tower crumble to the ground as the sun rises in the early morning.

In the credits, Don Paolo is seen walking out after the contraption crashes and his clothes are torn.


Along the way up to the top of the tower, Layton and Luke meet up with irrelevant people and solve a hefty amount of puzzles. These include "Get the Ball Out! 4", "A Magic Square", "Take the Stairs", "Princess in a Box 1", "Card Order", "33333!", and "Seven Squares" in that order.
