The construction of the cathedral started in mid–13th century and was continued in stages for over 200 years. It is the biggest of all town’s churches.
According to the legend, this medieval fortified tower was built by a Teutonic knight from Toruń as a penance for committed sins.
Its construction started in 1309, on the Teutonic Order’s initiative. The church is presumed to be the most beautiful of all Toruń’s churches.
Monastery Gate (known also as the Holy Spirit Gate) was constructed in the 14th c., as one of the four leading to the town from the port on the River Vistula.
