Sopron | Fő tér and Tűztorony

WI_hu803.jpg

Fő tér is the main square in the historic centre of Sopron. Tűztorony (Fire Tower) served as a gate tower at the medieval town wall and as a lookout tower for the early detection of fires. The appearance of the tower itself goes back to its reconstruction after a fire in 1676. The town hall appears in the right portion of the photo.
