What is a castle turret?

I need to draw a castle with several turrets but am unsure of what they are.

Turrets are the tall cylindrical features that are typically found on corners and at the gates of castles. They were used as fighting platforms.

It is a tower-like room or platform that extends past the normal wall levels. It can be a series of stairs to lead up to a room or it can be used as a watch tower or archer roost. It typically has alternating rectangular ridges surrounding the wall at the top.
