Sighisoara: Clock Tower

Sighisoara: Clock Tower

The Gate Tower, known as the Clock Tower, is the symbol of Sighisoara city and a symbol of Transylvania. Placed on the Eastern part of the citadel, this tower was the main access point to the city. It has a 64 meters height, being built in the 14th century. It is called the Clock Tower because of the horologe with linden wood figures– the Pagan Gods sculpted represent the days of the week - dating from the 17th century.
