The Romanesque fortified tower, also known as 'donżon', is the oldest structure on the castle hill. It was erected in the 1st half of the 13th century using stone and brick. The tower is around 20 m high and the thickness of its walls at the basement level comes to 4 m. The highest part of the structure is lit by a biforium -  a type of window characteristic of Romanesque architecture divided into two arches by a stone column. The top of the tower features a viewing terrace with a beautiful view of the Old Town and the surrounding area.
