Tower 5

The tower that protected the Palace

Tower 5 served as a defence bastion for the Palace. It was built in the second phase of construction, i.e. during the reign of despot Stefan Lazarevic, and architecturally belongs to the Lower Compound of the Inner Fort. The tower is an enclosed 6-storey structure with two entrances, one from the palace and the other from the rampart walking path.
Besides its defence function, the discovered remains of fireplace and toilet suggest that it doubled as living quarters.
