If you decide to visit Sibiu, and you get there and you asked a resident what you can visit, he will answer without second thoughts - The Council Tower.

The tower is one of the best known symbols of the city of Sibiu.

The Council Tower is located in the center ever since the first bricks were laid for the construction of the Hermann burg and has remained to grow with it.

The first time was mentioned in the historical documents in the period 1224 - 1241, with the second row of fortifications of the city, while Sibiu is mentioned for the first time in 1191. In those days, the Tower had only four floors and served as fortification of the entrance gate from the second series of fortifications of the city of Sibiu.

Only two centuries after it was built, it collapses after uni earthquake. Two years later, in 1588 The Council Tower is rebuilt. Its base and the ground have remained unchanged since the medieval times, but the top of the building suffered significant changes

His present form, with a single tower in the middle, dates back to 1824. The last repair was in 2006 when the Tower was included in the rehabilitation program, along with the historical center of Sibiu, for the big event from 2007 - Sibiu - European Cultural Capital.

Historic monument and symbol of the city, The Council Tower from Sibiu is both a support column and the central axis around which unfolds the whole life of the historical center.
