Facts

  • In 1410 an astronomical clock, complete with an array of figures which emerge every hour, was added to the south face of the tower. It remains in operation today, much to the delight of crowds of tourists.
  • The Old Town Hall had its beginning in 1338 when the city received permission to build it. It was financed by a tax on wine, with the consequence that construction was able to proceed rapidly.
  • The tower - symbol of the city's secular power - followed a few years later.
