Segesvar is a UNESCO protected town and from 1999 it is a part of the wold-treasure. It has a medieval castle what is inhabited today as well. On the settlement's hill there was built a castle in 1280 for the first time. In the XVI.th century under the castle there established masters concentrated in well organized crafts. Thanks to their good financier status soon they'd built a 930 m long and 4 meter height stone wall around the castle.
In the XV.th century the height of the wall arrised with another 3-4 meter and during the following 200 years the height of the wall somewhere attained 15 meter. They've built 14 watch-towers as well what were named after the crafts that backed up there building.
9 towers of the 14 still exist: the clock-towers, the tanner's, the thailor's, the smith's, the furrier's, the boot-maker's, the butcher's, the Rope-maker's, and the tin-tower. Unfortunately today doesn't exist the barber's, the fitter's, weaver's and the cooper's tower.
