  • Thanks to day of free visits promoted from Lega Ambiente we could visit with a guide the clock tower in Piazza dei Signori in Padua. What about best choice couldn't make the tower stands on 3 floors of which, however, only 3 can be visited and what impresses is the whole mechanism that allows the perfect functioning of the clock tower if you think is the oldest clock with pendulum and zodiacal signs working in business, I leave you to imagine all the construction technique and the brilliance of its operation as complicated and at the same time so fascinating. So for anyone who wants to better understand the history of Padua and domination of the family of Carraresi cannot of course forget about visiting this monument, a special thanks to the volunteers to Lega Ambiente and my heartfelt thanks.

  • The clock tower, completed by the underlying arc that connects it to the nearby square, is home to the 14th century it was rebuilt around the "astrario 450 watch for damage caused by fire. It is very nice and interesting, and mostly still working with the original mechanisms. Strikes the hours and five minutes later the retorts. As Sun sign Libra is missing

  • Is a very old astronomical clock and still working. In particular, I was impressed by its colors and details. I thus advise stopping here during the day to observe it better.

  • One of the nicest squares in Padova, great for hanging out with an aperitivo at night
  • Down the Piazza dei Signori stands majestically and fascinating "the clock tower". Note the astronomical clock, one of the few examples perfectly restored and working in Italy.

  • Beautiful astronomical clock. From here you can reach the palazzo del Capitano.

  • Piazza dei Signori. One of the most beautiful squares of Padua, enriched by this wonderful watch.

  • Located at the bottom of Piazza dei Signori, inserted in the Tower, you will see the first (most likely) astronomical clock made in Italy (in the mid-1400). Indicates hours, month, moon phases, and the course of the Sun through the zodiac signs ... but if you look at him without knowing it you can't imagine much engineering. Deserves at least a stop of admiration.
