A Turret is a small tower that projects vertically from the wall of a building such as a medieval castle. Turrets were used to provide a projecting defensive position allowing covering fire to the adjacent wall in the days of military fortification. Because the romanticism of medieval architecture is strong, turrets live on in today’s architecture. They were particularly popular with Victorian Houses. However, even new-build houses today include turrets for appearance sake. Many qualify those houses as McMansions.
