Round tower

The Round tower is part of what remains from the defensive wall of Poreč. It was situated on the southeastern part of the Poreč peninsula, from where arrivals from sea and land were controlled. It was built in 1474 during the ruling of the podesta' Pietro da Mulo. A stone table memorial with the initials of the podesta' and the year of completion were engraved on the top southern side of the tower. The plan of the tower is in regular circular shape while it's interior is made of intricate, irregular corridors, passages, rises and loopholes. The tower was built by the Venetians during the last renewal of the Poreč defense walls because of the threatening Ottoman danger.
