Roman watchtower at Visegrád-Lepence

The large, 18 x 18-meter watch-tower, characteristic of the Roman fortresses in Danube Bend, was built in 371, during the reign of Emperor Valentinian, and has been preserved in particularly good conditions. There were four pillars standing in its interior, and a stone wall surrounded it from the outside. The main entrance was decorated with a building inscription discovered intact and with three busts symbolizing the then ruling three emperors. The excavations revealed the western half with high stone walls. Over the eastern half the 11th main road is built.

The watchtower is an important object of the Pannonian Limes, and as such, is a part of the World Heritage project under preparation. On the basis of the survey the virtual reconstruction of the watchtower is possible, including its unique doorway. The 3D scanning of the walls and the stone carvings of the gate allows refining the digital measurement techniques and processing methods of the Roman building remains and stone carvings, as well as their utilization in archaeology, history, architecture and architectural history.

Project results can be displayed at the permanent exhibition of the Museum of Visegrád. The results of the project can be used in the restoration works of Roman architectural remains and their displaying in the museum.
