The Blacksmiths' Tower, Sighisoara

The Blacksmiths' Tower, Sighisoara

The Blacksmiths' Tower is one of the 14 defending towers protecting the medieval town.

One can see the shooting windows on the upper part and the way the tower is emerging from the defending wall.

Interesting archaeological research revealed some great detailed design can be viewed at http://www.cimec.ro/Arheologie/CronicaCA2001/web_cronica_foto/187/index.htm The one to the left is looking at the tower nearly from the same angle as this photo.
