The Truncated Tower In Salonta

On our way back home, we decided to make a short stop in Salonta to check out the Truncated tower. We left our car very close to the tower, right next to a park. The place was closed when we arrived there, so I was able to capture only some exterior shots of the building.

The Truncated tower was built in the 16th century and its main purpose was to protect the lives of the soldiers and their families which were living in this small settlement. Back then, this place was occupied by the Ottoman empire along with other parts of the country.
