The southern gate
PRINCELY COURT TÂRGOVIŞTE
The entrance, which is still used now, lies under the bell tower built at the end of the 16th century (1584) and then reconstructed in the age of Matei Basarab and Constantin Brancoveanu.
The bell tower has the same constructional features as the inside wall of the enclosure (raised by Petru Cercel), to whom he is related organically, not only as a structure, but from its settlement point of view, compared to the frontage wall.
The building of the tower was determined by the existence of the church, which didn't have the possibility of accommodating a tower bell in its own steeples.
