The Borovitskaya Tower (former Predtechenskaya, the Precursor's) is a corner tower with a through-passage on the west side of the Kremlin. It was named after the grove («bor» in Russian) that covered this side of the hill - one of the seven hills Moscow is standing on. The tower was constructed in 1490 on the spot of an old Kremlin gate by Italian architect Pietro Antonio Solari by order of Vasili III of Russia.
