Bell Tower

What to see in Bene Vagienna, Cuneo, Piedmont


In Bene Vagienna, the bell tower sandwiched between the Town Hall and the Parish Church of Santa Maria Assunta is a splendid example of Romanesque-Gothic architecture, with an octagonal spire, mullioned windows, single-lancet windows and ogive windows. The bell tower was joined to the old Gothic church, which was later replaced by the present 17th-century parish church built according to the design of Savoy captain Giovenale Boetto. An element of special interest is represented, by the Roman capital, placed above the entrance door, which replaces a Roman tombstone had it removed in the 1600s by Duke Charles Emmanuel who took it to Turin. The bell tower - restored in 1998 - is currently equipped with 8 bells and has a large sundial on the outside with an 18th-century lunarium inserted. Significant exhibitions are held inside the cell.
