Turul Croitorilor, the Tailors' Tower, now serves as the main entrance to the citadel. If you arrive by car or taxi you will pass through it. It was originally built in the fourteenth century and its maintenance was the responsibility of the town's tailors. Unfortunately, it was also used to store the town's gunpowder and in 1676 a massive explosion largely destroyed the tower. It was restored in 1935, although only to less than half of its original height.
