The Eastern Tower and Ruins (stone), the XV-XVI century. Preservation Number #754 | Foto
Town of Sataniv

The eastern tower is in ruins. The oldest round tower has a diameter of 6 m and the width of the walls on the level of the first tier is 1.2 m. The coverings were flat and on beams. There were loopholes in the walls which were framed and covered with white-stone blocks. We can judge by the stone wall remnants that the tower protruded over the line of the wall by three fourths.
The round tower is a rare example of defence architecture because it demonstrates the evolution of the flanking towers, loopholes and other details.
