The Drapers' Bastion was built by the goldsmith guild during 1450-1455. In 1640 that the weavers' guild took over the bastion. The circle shaped fortress is 16 meters in diameter and 19 m high. Its thick, two meter walls have loopholes in it while on the ground floor there are crevices made for the cannons bought in Prague. It was one of the most protected bastions. Its frame was consolidated during 1961-1962 and renovated in 2005.
