Your creations on Minecraft may be amazing, but some players and mobs will try to destroy them! Once you know how, you can create a fortified wall to protect your creations and keep the griefers out.


  1. Create an outline for your wall, using a block of your choice. Cobblestone is a good option. Decide how many blocks deep and wide you would like it to be. If you decide it's too small, that doesn't matter because it's easy to expand it later.
  2. Build the walls up to your desired hight, leaving gaps at regular intervals along the top. These gaps (called crenels) allow your friends to shoot enemies with a bow without having to jump awkwardly whenever they fire. Add a wood plank walkway to the top of the walls below the crenels to create battlements.
  3. Fortify your wall with another layer. Stone bricks are a good idea to build out from the wall and create a pillar-like support that looks difficult to get through. An optional addition is to add stone brick slabs across the top of the wall to break up the large amounts of cobblestone.
  4. Add stone brick stairs to the lower section (underneath the wooden walkway) of the wall. These will allow access from the top of the wall to the bottom. Also, add corners to each of the pillar sections on the wall and stairs above the stone brick running across the middle of the wall.
  5. Lay out a circular shape at the base of one end of your wall. Create this circle with the block you used for the wall base, (such as cobblestone) so that the tower blends in with the rest of the wall.
  6. Build up the tower to at least double the height of the actual wall. Add crenels to the top, as you did before.
  7. Add some detail. Create two upper layers using stone brick blocks circling the entire tower (which helps break up the large amounts of cobblestone again). Also, add a wood plank walkway at the top of the tower to match the top of the walls.
  8. Add windows to each level of your tower before destroying cobblestone blocks in your desired location. Create a staircase inside so that you and your allies can easily climb up and down the tower during battle. Also, use stone brick stairs to create two extra layers you added in the previous step appear smoother and extend out a little further. Finally, create a torch from netherrack for the top.


  • This will take a few hours for a first-timer.
  • The blocks shown here are just options. You can use whatever blocks you want, but cobblestone has high blast resistance.
  • Start by building the wall small, so you can expand on it later and it won't be too big.
  • If you add windows, use iron bars for the more medieval look.
