  • Cannot go unnoticed with its pronounced slope due to the slow sinking caused by the fact that they stand above the old bed of a river. It was built in the 12th century along with other towers, but is the only one that remains. It is 39 metres high.

  • We had heard about a saying quite fashionable among the Ravenna Ravenna "whose meaning for" Mariola would be: "find something close, but failed to find it" and because the origin of this motto seems to derive from two curious stone fragments depicting a woman's head, perhaps, with a rider that turns its back, placed in a niche at the base of the Tower , we headed to this structure to satisfy our curiosity but unfortunately we found the base "wrapped" by a wooden structure. At this tower, originally of about 40 meters tall, brick and square, flowed once the urban section of a river, likely because of its slow and gradual steep even by the vibrations caused by the sound of bells. Therefore, after you apply a structure external reinforcement, proceeded even to the demolition of the upper section of the tower which appears now to a height of about two-thirds of the original. Finally ... a real disappointment!

  • The Tower, which dates from the 12th century, it is walking distance from Piazza del Popolo and presents a unique slope, due to a failure of the surrounding terrain. Are visible only outside.

  • Tower of the 12th century, survived the destruction of the towers of late 13th century (Pontifical, in order to show their local hegemony). About ten years ago, it was (unfortunately) removed the top of the tower for safety reasons. His inclination is mainly due to the ancient River (urban) Padenna that ran through the area. Famous for the so-called "mariola". The Interior is not open to the public.

  • Torre got there to us in part, very much leaning because of groundwater to the surface of this area!
