The Cathedral’s Bell Tower, Sorrento

The Cathedral’s Bell Tower, Sorrento

The Bell Tower has great historic importance, because its small arched rooms and the vault on Via Peta, at the entrance of the Bishop's Palace, served as a place for the people of Sorrento to meet. The columns and shapes at the base of the tower have Romanesque-Era influences. The upper part of the tower was probably rebuilt to its current size in the 15th century.
