About The Citadel of Saschiz

The fortress was built in the XIV century to protect the inhabitants of Saschiz and six other nearby localities from foreign invasion.

The works began in 1347, as it indicated an inscription on the northwest wall of the fortress. Also, in the enclosure wall (7-9 m) were inserted the four corner towers and the two towers from the gates, with the rol of surveillance and defense.

The only intact evidence is the 65 m deep fountain, which is said that makes the connection, through an underground tunnel, between the fortress and center Saschiz.
