Tower Of Saint Cristoforo Reviews & Ratings
Massive! Fantastic historical monument.
A lovely Romanic tower, built around 1300, back when Aristanis was somewhat powerful. Even with the plaza floor height growing a bit and shortening it, it still looks grand. The bell on its top has been silent since centuries but sometimes, on Three King's Day, a firefighter masquerading as the Befana rappels down the tower to give candy to children. Near it there's also a fountain, supposedly modern and artistic, but actually a crappy, ill-mantained copy. Still, the tower's nice
Fantastic food at Kalispera restaurant. Grazie
Good location to chill.
