Wawel Sandomierska Tower
Lesser Poland Voivodeship
One of Wawel's two artillery towers, Sandomierska Tower was built around 1460 to defend the castle against attack from the south.
A small chamber on the third floor would have served as either a guard's lodging or a prison for nobles, whereas common criminals were held in the dungeons.
Recently opened to tourists, climb the 137 winding steps for great photo opportunities, particularly of the castle courtyard and Cathedral.
