The Butcher’s Tower, built in the second half of the fifteenth century, lies on the western side of the surrounding wall and it is one of the two defense towers of the Törle gate, where once, the herds were divided every evening.

A stronghold was built in front of it. Positioned at the foot of the steepest parts of the hill, it had a defensive role from the SW and NW of the city. Because of its hexagonal shape, it had field firing in all directions.
