Before Consolata: the church of Sant'Andrea

The bell tower is the only surviving element of Sant'Andrea, the church before the Sanctuary. It was a church with three naves and a convent attached to a cloister. The bell tower, from the eleventh century, is one of the best preserved examples of medieval architecture in Turin. In the construction materials of the Roman era were also used, such as bricks and marble reliefs, visible along the walls. At the beginning of the fifteenth century a new bell room raises the bell tower until forty meters hight.
