Ghirlandina Tower

The Ghirlandina Tower is the bell tower of the Modena Cathedral, and it has played an important role in the life of the city for centuries: its bells told the city’s residents the time, signaled that the gates in the city walls were opening, and called people to safety when danger threatened. The summit of its eighty-six meters offers a breathtaking 360° view of the city as well as a special perspective on Piazza Grande below, the city’s eternal heart.
