"S. Pietro Cathedral's Tower." San Pietro Tip by Azhut

San Pietro, Bologna: 11 reviews and 32 photos


The bell tower rises up on the right-hand side of the church, near the side entrance in Via Altabella; it is the oldest part of the Cathedral and an extremely important document for its history. It was built in Romanesque style in the early 13th century, but contains another bell tower in the interior, built on a circular plan in the late 10th century and raised up immediately afterwards in 1184. The bell tower, 70 metres in height, represents the second highest tower of medieval Bologna (after the Tower of the Asineli).
