A small austere tower dating from Middle Ages, located on the right side of the dome, looks a bit out of the picture today.

The tower has a tent shaped roof since the fire in 1744 and was intended to be demolished after the other two towers had been completed.

Still during the years it survived as a witness to the past, although today has a certain disturbing effect on the whole structure.
