The low cylindrical tower was built on the lowest end of the third belt of town fortifications, probably after the unsuccessful siege of Znojmo by Austrian and Hungarian forces in 1404.

At the end of the 16th century, the upper section of the tower was converted into a observation post, where a canon was installed during any periods of threat.
