This tower is located where Krzywoustego Street crosses Popiela Street, between Park Piastowski and Park Popiela. The nearest bus stop is located on Krzywoustego Street.
It is one of the biggest fortified towers in Poland. It was built in the 15th century. This eight-storey, masonry construction is 31 meters high. Its top part is cylindrical but based on a square foundation. It has two upper parapets with crenels (rectangular gaps in the battlements). The gable is covered with a brick cone, and the façade is ornamented with glazed brick elements.
There used to be a dungeon on the bottom floor of the tower, and the upper rooms served defensive and observation purposes.
The name - Baszta Tkaczy [Weavers Tower], derives from the fact that the weavers’ guild in Stargard looked after the tower. It was also called Baszta Lodowa [Ice Tower] because it was used as an ice warehouse.
These days, sightseeing tours of the tower’s interiors are not possible, due to their poor technical condition.
