Bell Tower

Motovun, (Motovun)

The bell tower of Motovun, a landmark dominating over the entire landscape of the middle Mirna valley, is 27 meters high and was built in the 13th century as the town’s main tower and observation post. Over the centuries it was refurbished on various occasions to be finally converted into a bell tower. The reconstructions are witnessed by inscriptions on its walls, while the reconstruction under the Podestà Giacomo Zeno was evidenced by an inscription carrying his coat of arms.
