The Red Tower

Hommiku tänav-11, Pärnu linn, Pärnu

View on map

The Red Tower was built in the 15th century as a prison in the Southeastern corner of the medieval fortress that surrounded the town of Pärnu. It is the only defensive tower of the Hanseatic town of New-Pärnu that has been preserved. This granite tower got its name from the brick that used to line the inside and outside of the tower. In the 17th century, the tower had four storeys and a prison cell that was 6 metres deep. Three storeys have been preserved.
In the 19th century, the building was renovated into the town archives, but the building served a number of different purposes over the following century.

Interesting tower

The tower is a part of the town wall. And the only survived part. They show a video about a history of Pärnu and there is a model of the ancient city. Interesting place, a little bit overpriced.

Red tower of Pärnu

Little tower with great history. You can visit the tower and at the top there is good 360° movie about the history of the tower.

The oldest structure in Parnu Old town

This medieval structure is easy to pass by without beeing discovered, since it is well hidden by other houses in the old town. However if you are lucky enough to notice it, this small charming tower...
