The Truncated Tower in Salonta

Published on July 2, 2022 by Zoltan Nyaradi

On our way back home from Oradea, we decided to make a short stop in Salonta to visit the Truncated tower which is also known as the Ciunt Tower. The place was unfortunately closed when we arrived there, so I was able to capture only some exterior shots of the building.

The Truncated tower was built in the 16th century and its main purpose was to protect the lives of the soldiers and their families which were living in this small settlement. Back then, this place was occupied by the Ottoman empire along with other parts of the country.

Right on the opposite side of the Truncated tower, you will find a larger park just in case you if you want to make a short brake in this small city.
