The interior was closed because the building is under construction but you can still view the exterior tower and the 15th century clock on its exterior made by Bartolomeo Manfredi

The clock is being restored at the moment, so there is no opportunity to climb the tower for the view.

Fascinating looking clock, visible from street as you walk by, nothing to indicate its significance or age but unusual looking.

A bit tight but they limit numbers in at a time. Lots of stairs are a must to see it. Nice old mechanism and a great view from the top.

The clock tower has seen better days but at it's peak it had a wide variety of functions. You can't miss it next to the round church.

Surprisingly, lots of sights in this small city. The ancient astrologic clock is one of them. Centrally located. Nicely restored. Guides will tell you the history
