Hat Tower

The main and tallest tower in the Fortress keeps its secrets to this day

Tower 1, better known as Hat Tower, was built on the most prominent and highest spot on the Ridan cliffs. In architectural terms, it belongs to the oldest, Inner Fort. The tower is multi-storey, polygonal in the base and circular in the upper storeys. A narrow path along the cliff leads to its entrance.

 

The new archaeological excavations, carried out in the debris layer right in front of the entrance and the large structure underneath the Hat Tower, have uncovered numerous fragments of fresco plaster that was common in Serbian medieval fresco paintings, an indication of the existence of an even earlier building painted with frescoes. Nonetheless, the main and tallest tower in the Fortress is undoubtedly most popularly noted for the numerous legends in which it appears.
