Monstrance Tower

In the Podmurna street several granaries and, in number 14/16, an octagonal tower called "monstrance" are preserved.

The tower was built in XV century as a part of Old Town walls to provide protection from the side of the destroyed Teutonic Knights Castle that allowed easy access for a potential enemy. Nowadays, the tower is utilized for numerous purposes, including artistic workshops.
