The wall of this tower is connected to the Roth memorial house. This very elegant, five storey tower's first two stories are connected by a spiral stone stairway. On the last storey you can see loopholes emerging from pillars. After the ropemaker's died in the leprosy epidemic, the harness-maker's wanted to have the tower. In the XIXth century the tower bared the name, Bacony Tower, derived from the Saxons who kept their bacons inside the tower. In the last period here, inside the tower, are kept the St. Margaret church archives, which holds in its possession many old leather and wood binding bibles.
