TORRE CIVICA
Mar 2019 • Couples
This tower, standing 150 feet, was constructed starting in 1267 and completed in 1305. It was home to the Guild of Notaries from 1524 to 1707. In addition, from here the Podesta issued sentences. It is topped by bells and has a clock on the façade.

A civil clock tower
Apr 2019 • Couples
It stands beside the Chiesa Santa Maria sopra Minerva, but it is not part of the church. It is a civil structure that dates from 1274 through 1305. In 1926, on the anniversary of the death of Saint Francis, it was completed by the instilation of The “Campana delle Laudi” (Bell of Praise) and by crowning the top with a crenellated parapet of swallow-tailed merlons.

It stands in a place that has been a market since roman times. In 1349 the Captain of the People ordered the making of a stone plaque for the purpose of establishing uniform measurements for many items including the actual dimensions and thickness of the bricks and roof tiles made in Assisi. He also ordered three iron rods in lengths which corresponded to the measurements used in the woolen cloth, silk and linen trades.

700 YEAR OLD BELL TOWER
Apr 2017 • Couples
This 47 meter square tower is located next to the Temple of Minerva in the Piazza del Comune. Tower was completed in the early 14th century, the clock installed in the mid 15th century. Tower can be seen above the rest of the surrounding buildings as you walk towards the piazza on Via Portica. The tower makes for a nice photo op.
