  • Built in 1344, this is an amazing astronomical building at the end of Piazza dei Signori, which is slap bang in the centre of Padova, very near Piazza delle Erbe e Piazza della Frutta.  more »
  • This tower is quite impressive. In any other place it would be the highlight of the town, but in Venice it is dwarfed by its neigbour, the San Marco cathedral. And the higher tower on San Marco square...  more »

  • 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.
