The Franciscan Bell Tower - Târgu Mureș

The Franciscan Tower in Târgu Mureş is an integral part of the 18th century Franciscan monastery built on the main square of the city. The simple, Baroque-style tower became a symbol of the destruction of Romanian socialism, just like the church of Bözödújfalu. In 1971, when the National Theater was built, the monastery was demolished with the church and the school in it. The church dignitaries have only been able to save the tower during long negotiations, given the fact that the entrance leading into the crypt of the monks starts from the tower. The tower is listed in the Romanian List of Monuments under number MS-II-m-A-15552.
