The civic Bissara Tower was built in the late 12th century and overlooks Piazza dei Signori, alongside the famous Basilica Palladiana. The tower was raised in the mid-15th century to it present height og 82 meters ans is still one of the tallest buildings in Vicenza. Inside the tower, the relics of saints and the five bells were placed. The tower was hit during the second WW, rebuilt partly different from the original design after the war am finally restored in the beginning of this century. In addition to the normal sound of the hours and half-hours, also the ninth hour, a melody composed by Maestro Valtinoni is played seven minutes before noon and seven minutes before 6 PM.
