Part of the overall experience of Sighisoara is the visit the turnuls that are part of the fortifications of the old town. All part of the great experience of Sighisoara

This tower sits next to the Saxon cemetery, at the top of the covered staircase. It has been restored to make into a modern home, used by the cemetery keeper, but remains an attractive building.

It's one of the oldest buildings in the city. Sadly it's impossible to go inside. Some people still living there .

It's located close to the Church on the Hill. You can stop by and take some pictures of it. Someone still lives there. It's not open to the public.

Currently the caretaker of the cemeteries home, looks like a quaint little house, rather than a fortification. Good spot for piccies.

A very old tower on top of the hill. Someone is still living there now as my guide told us. It would be great if we can check the interior, however it's not opened to public.
