The Clock Tower, Saschiz

The Clock Tower from Saschiz is one of Transylvania’s most beautiful medieval monuments that belongs, as well as the fortified church, to the Saxon architecture of the XVth century. Even today, the Tower marks the centre of Saschiz. Its defensive destination is obvious and we can still see the 12 skylights and the four little towers on the corners. The roof’s decoration and shape clearly indicate the tower which served as a model to its builders, that is the Clock Tower from Sighisoara. Today everybody can admire the Evangelic Church and the Clock Tower only a few meters away from the European road (E60) that crosses the centre of Saschiz.
