Cathedral of Salerno, Bell Tower (mid 12th cen)

I can not help but write a post about the bell tower of St. Matthew Cathedral in Salerno. I wish all visitors who come and visit famous sites around Salerno could have a look at it. I photographed the ancient cathedral at all times of the day. Still I do not have enough pictures to satisfy my wish to show the beauty of the slender tower overlooking Salerno’s old town. It was built in Arab-Norman style, contains 8 bells and is 56 meters high. With small arcades and mullioned windows its harmonious silhouette invites to enter the splendid square porch. A place of incomparable serenity.
