Ghirlandina Tower

Connected to the Cathedral by two arches is the Ghirlandina Tower, the Cathedral’s bell tower and the symbol of Modena. Elegant and proud, this splendid structure, beloved by Modena’s residents, soars to a height of eight-nine meters. From its earliest days, the bells of the Ghirlandina Tower told the city’s residents the time and called people to safety when danger threatened. Be sure to include a climb up the 200 steps of the Ghirlandina Tower in your plans.

From the top you’ll enjoy a spectacular 360° view of the city—a truly special experience!
