Torre dell'Orologio



Municipalities: Municipalities:Faenza

Address: Piazza del Popolo

Tourist offices: I.A.T. Faenza

Description: An old defensive bulwark that dates back to 1290. The tower was rebuilt in 1548, damaged several times and redimensioned to its current shape in 1850. Below there still traces of the walls of the old homes visible. The peak of this hill is a panoramic point for looking onto the town, the chalk and the gullies.

 
Timetable:

The tower can usually be seen from the outside only.


Directions: The tower can usually be seen from the outside only. The best view can be had from the Palazzo del Podesta, and one only needs to go as far as the gallery at the top of the external stairway that climbs behind and which provides access to the large hall. As it is Faenza’s most central monument, it can be reached on foot by going into the Piazza del Popolo square.
