Campanile della Chiesa di San Giovanni Battista di Motta Montecorvino

The Gothic Bell Tower towers over the village so much that you can see it from far away. Its position and its domination over the surrounding territory are not random: originally it was one of the towers of the pentagonal medieval walls.

The tower, which became a bell tower in 1447, denounces in its aspect and asymmetrical arrangement of some of its elements the various tampering suffered over time. In stone and massive it rests on an ogival arch, which was the gateway to the city and allows to date the construction to XIII-XIV sec. During the Second World War the tower returned for a short time to its original function of fortress and inaccessible point of lookout by the Germans who had occupied Motta Montecorvino.
