Turnul Alb / DP

Built between 1460 and 1494, the White Tower still impresses with the massiveness and slim of its architectural lines. By summarizing its architecture in the data we can say: open semicircular plan; over 30 m level difference from the city walls; Height: 20 m to the city and 18 m towards the hill; The walls are based on 4 m, and the diameter of the tower measures 19 m. Throughout its walls, the tower presents meterese, pitch holes and balconies supported by stone carved consoles. Being 59 m away from the fortress wall, the tower communicates with it through a mobile bridge that connected the tower and the Graft bastion. He had a view towards the bluma and, with his 5 floors, was the highest fortification point in Brasov. Inside the tower, the chimney was kept above a glass, which could also serve to heat the guardians and defenders - guilds and copper. In 1678, the guild of the Cositors redeemed the obligation to defend the tower, the number of craftsmen being low. On the occasion of the great fire of April 21, 1689, the fire carried by a strong wind also included the White Tower, which burned, being renovated only in 1723. Other restoration actions were performed in 1902, 1974, 2002 and 2005 - 2006. Today it has a museum point.
