Master James

During the Turkish threat, people of Trnava were in need of a tower, from which they would be able to observe any impending danger. For this purpose, the municipality decided to build Trnava city tower, which was to be built by the master mason James. Master James was a widower and his only son was killed by Turks, for which he loathed them even more. Therefore, he devoted his entire strength to the construction of the tower, which became the sole purpose of his life. However, when the construction neared its conclusion, the strength of master builder started to wane. On the day, when he was to present the tower to the municipality, all the bells in town rang and master James breathed his last with the words “I did it!” on his lips.
