I always enjoy looking up and seeing a bold, unique tower poking out of a skyline. It’s likely stood for centuries through prosperity and destruction, perhaps changing hands a few times, all the while serving as a comforting beacon to people who associate it with their people and where they are from.
Here are some clock towers and a bell tower I liked in Nice.
The plaque on the tower above read, simply, Tour de L’horloge (clock tower). Enough said, I suppose.
Below, the Saint Francis Tower is an 18th century Baroque tower that was built as a belfry for a Franciscan convent. The tower is the convent’s only remnant.
This is the top of 17th century Chapelle de la Très-Sainte-Trinité et du Saint-Suaire.
