What, presumably: it's turned into a citadel, with torturers, witches,
magic atria, homunculi, the works.  Nowhere a hard-working sailor can land
a spaceship any more.  (Borskian exercise: now prove that the Matachin
tower is part of Jonas' ship having passed through a time-warp.  Way beyond
my competence, but maybe someone out there...)
