TORRE CIVICA
The clock tower was built where the old Medieval castle gateway used to be since it was founded around the early centuries after 1000, probably upon Barbarossa's wish, as some documents state. The same old documents report that the castle was surrounded by very strong walls and a deep moat called "la Fossa" (the moat). What is thought to be left of the old castle is probably just one of the two towers, which was thereafter transformed into the clock tower, before 1377.
