The Romanesque bell tower

It is located between the perimeter walls of the church and the cloister. The bell tower has a square base and culminates in an octagonal cusp with four pinnacles at the corners. It’s 56 meters high and allows passage to the ground floor. The upper part is lightened with mullioned windows and pentaphores. A passage allows direct access to the cloister.

The bell tower, detached from the building, is the only element that remains of the first construction. The Romanesque system is visible in its shape and recalls the towers of Sant'Agostino and San Giovanni di Pre.
