The '''[[Defence Against the Dark Arts]] tower''' is one of the many towers of [[Hogwarts Castle]]. It stands next to the [[Viaduct Entrance]], overlooks the [[Suspension Bridge]] and also the [[Training Grounds]].
The tower has a "semi-circular" shape and is where DADA lessons are held and where the DADA [[professor]]'s office is. [[Minerva McGonagall]]'s [[Minerva McGonagall's office|office]] is located on the first floor of this tower. The [[Defence Against the Dark Arts staircase]] runs through the centre of this tower.

*In the PS1 version of ''Chamber of Secrets'' we get to explore the tower from bottom to top, in which we are set into a time-challenge were we have to get to classroom in time. We also gets present to a hall with [[Verdimillious Duo]]-platforms and a entrance at a higher level. Also, there is a [[Defence Against the Dark Art's Store Room]], a room with a lever that connects to a triple door room into the Professor's office and the tower's entrance. There's also a room called [[Warning! Keep Out! Dangerous Creatures Inside!]]. These many weird corridors may fit in with magical means.
*This tower had stayed the same throughout the first five films, but in the [[Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (film)|film adaptation]] of ''[[Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince]]'', the DADA Tower and [[Dark Tower]] were replaced by the [[Astronomy Tower]]. The contents of this tower were moved to the inside of the Astronomy Tower. This tower was going to appear at [[The Wizarding World of Harry Potter]], but was replaced by the Astronomy Tower instead.
*Although the books do not state where McGonagall's office is, it can be seen in the films.
*Upon close inspection of the DADA classroom, one notices that the room curves very slightly along its longer side. It is unknown how this architecture can fit into the shape of the tower - one can only assume it is accomplished by magical means.
