The tower's height is 22 m. The walls are built of local rock, with some rows of brick. Their width varies from 60 cm at the upper level to 2 m at the bottom. Inside there is a spiral staircase. When the tower was renovated, an elevator was installed. For a short while, the History Museum of Chişinău had its headquarters in this building.
A similar tower was built at the crossing of Vasile Alecsandri and Veronica Micle streets, but it does not exist anymore.
