Fisherman´s Bastion

The Bastion takes its name from the guild of fishermen that was responsible for defending this stretch of the city walls in the Middle Ages. It is a viewing terrace, with many stairs and walking paths. Its seven towers represent the seven Magyar tribes that settled in the Carpathian Basin in 896.
