- Sighisoara’s Citadel (Cetatea Sighisoarei) -For several centuries, Sighisoara was a military and political stronghold. During the 14th – 16th centuries, the Saxon craft guilds erected towers around the citadel walls to protect the town from Turkish raids. Laid out on two to four levels, the towers stored ammunition and food supplies and were provided with firing windows for cannons, shells and arrows. Of the original fourteen towers and five artillery bastions, nine towers and two bastions have survived the test of time.
