Tower 27

Listen to the text of the page

Originally a defensive shell tower from the 14th  century – analogous  to tower no. 24. Currently reconstructed  in the style of  a modest residential and rural working building from the 19th  century. The partially preserved gothic walls were of  a light half-timbered structure on one side. The tower shows and commemorates the historical and social processes related to the re-use of medieval town fortifications for economic, housing and warehouse purposes, mainly by the urban poor, from the second half of the 18th century to the beginning of the 20th  century. The exhibition located in the tower presents two issues of Kashubian culture. The first is Kashubian folk art, with particular emphasis on traditional  folk costume and Kashubian embroidery patterns from various regions of Kashubia. The second is folk medicine in reference to herbal medicine cultivated in the Kashubian region over the centuries.
