Redzepagic Kula

by Discover Montenegro

The Redzepagic Kula built in the 17th century differed from those built later according to their lofty proportions, height and a projecting top floor. It had primarily defensive function. In contrast to a large number of towers built in the 19th century, only Redzepagic Kula is one of two older towers that have survived. Redzepagic tower is built on exceptional and strategically important location. Redžepagić tower is built in the oldest part of Plav, near a medieval fortress, on a rise, which offered a view of and the possibility to control the surroundings. At the time of the construction, towers were not isolated buildings. They had a courtyard, enclosed by a high wall, which began and ended next to tower walls. Inside the courtyard, there were several smaller houses and utility buildings, including a ‘mutvak’ what was a bakery. The courtyard was entered in through a high gate with double doors and a ‘kapidžik’, a side gate.
