About Turnul Alb

Turnul Alb, or the White Tower, is a circular tower built in the late 15th century as part of the city's fortifications. Standing opposite the Black Tower, it offers a striking view of Brașov from its elevated position on a hill adjacent to the old city walls. The tower's name derives from its white limestone façade, which distinguishes it from its counterpart.

Best Time/Season to Visit:

The tower is best visited from late spring to early fall when the path up the hill is easily navigable, and the surrounding greenery adds to the beauty of the historic site.
