September 25, 2013 – Our second day in Romania was spent wandering around the ancient citadel of SighiÈ™oara.

The Tinsmiths' Tower has a rectangular base, pentagonal bastion, octagonal facade and hexagonal roof.

The Musketeers' Passage, or Gallery, is a corridor with a wooden roof resting on stone arches that enabled musketeers to travel safely between the Tower and the Tinsmiths' and Tanners' bastions.
