Torre dell'Orologio di Padova - From Piazza dei Signori davanti alla Torre dell'Orologio, Italy

This 158-foot-tall brick tower was built in the early 15th century and stands at the very heart of the Padovan city centre. The tower's main feature is a large, bell-shaped clock, which is still in operation and strikes the hours for the city.

The area near the tower is also home to several beautiful churches and other noteworthy buildings, with the picturesque Piazza dei Signori square being located nearby.
