Public Clocks Towers

Clock tower of Udine

The clock tower of Udine, Italy

After having lunch at a wonderful inner yard near the duomo I came across the famous clock tower (Torre dell’Orologio) of Udine. The tower is part of the Loggia di San Giovanni at the Piazza della Libertà. It was built by Giovanni da Udine in 1527, an architect who is also known for his drawings of birds.
