One of the city's oldest buildings, the south-eastern tower of the defense system, is in the center. For a long time it was the most feared place, being the prison of the city. Above the entrance is a 1821 renovation panel, posted by the master of the prison, Kassai Mihály.

We descend a few steps, enter the cold and humid room where we are surrounded by the atmosphere of a medieval prison. Here a stone plate tells us the 8-month detention of Bányai Sámuel. The dungeon functioned until the middle of the nineteenth century.
