Tower 6 architecturally belongs to the Upper Compound of the Outer Fort, built at a later date. It is square based, presumed to originate from the time of despot Stefan Lazarevic. During the Ottoman rule, at the time of intensified use of firearms, it was reinforced with battlements, as were the other towers in the Outer Ward, and adjusted to the new form of warfare. Around the same time, cannon fire embrasures aimed towards the hillside behind the Fortress were added as another defensive measure.
Tower 6 is open in its entire height, which indicates that it served for defensive purposes.
