A visit to this tower (1496-1499) is the chance to discover the interesting history of a temperatore, expert, who lived here with his family to take care of the complex mechanism. The clock features several faces, each indicating either the time, moon or sun movements and two Moors who beat out the hours and the Wise Kings, who appear on January 6 and on Ascension Day. Lovely view of the rooftops of Venice's houses and churches.
