Drum Tower information
While the Bell Tower originally held a bell that was rung at dawn, the Drum Tower marked nightfall. It too dates from the 14th century and was later rebuilt in the 1700s. Musical performances are held inside from 09:00 to 11:30 and 14:30 to 17:30. Close by, a covered market sells dried fruits and delicious cakes.
