The Council Tower-Sibiu Romania

EN:

The Council Tower was built in the 13th century being the first time mentioned in a document dated 1370.

It partially collapsed in 1586, and was reconstructed in 1588.

The roof was modified several times.

In 1829 the last level was added and the roof was modified under the actual shape.

During the years the tower was used for various purpoises, including a jail and corn storehouse.

At the last floor, an observation desk allows a bird-eyes view over the historic town and one floor below you can see the clock mechanism
