Torre dell'Orologio, Lucca

Torre dell'Orologio, Lucca (must see)

Torre dell'Orologio is a clock tower, 50 meters in height. It is the highest tower in the city dating back to Medieval times. The tower is characterized by a slender body with two windows below the cell, corresponding to the room where the clock mechanism is placed. The staircase consists of 207 wooden steps. The clock itself is run by a mechanism from 1754. It is a work from Geneva in collaboration with Louis Simon Sigismondo Caturegli. It had Roman numerals, and was then rebuilt and hand shaped with a single star in the centre. The biggest bell announces the hours from one to six, and the other two smaller bells announce the quarters of hours.
