  • Nice.
  • The building has a square plan, it was built in 1472 and 1473 by architect Luca Fancelli,] Florentine architect in the service of Ludovico III Gonzaga of Mantua on the foundations of an older building dating back to the 13th century. The door on the ground floor leads to the palazzo della Ragione. At the end of the astronomical clock was placed on the Tower 1473, the work of the mathematician mantovano Bartolomeo Manfredi, also known as Bartholomew of the watch. The clock showed ordinary hours, astrologers and planets. Also noted the path of the Sun through the signs of the Zodiac and the phases of the moon. From 1700 is no longer active, the astronomical mechanism was restarted in 1989 by blacksmith and watchmaker Alberto Gorla of Cividale Mantovano.

  • Not much to look at but it was nice to see the old clock's movement at the stroke of the hour

  • Definitely worth the visit to enjoy views of the city from above, and to learn about the history of the watch that sets it apart.
