The Prudnik town used to have the first defending fortification probably in the 14th century. In the middle ages, the two gates were used to enter the town: the upper gate called “Niska” and the lower one. Beside the lower one, a stoned tower was built to support the defences of the town - The tower of lower gate.

In 2006, the tower was completely restored and today it presents a very precious monument of town architecture. The renovation got much attention not only with the citizens, but also with cultural heritage institutions. The restoration work was awarded even by the Polish Ministry of Culture as “Treated monument”.
