Sandomierska Tower

  Wawel 5 ,   Old Town         12 Apr 2024

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. Open to tourists from April 22nd until the end of October, climb the 137 winding steps for decent views, particularly of the castle courtyard and Cathedral, though the photo opportunities aren't great.


Open 10:30-18:00 .
Open from April 22 to October 31 only.
