Walking along the famous Corso Umberto of Taormina you arrive in Piazza IX Aprile, dominated by the beautiful Clock Tower. It built in the twelfth century on the remains of previous buildings dating back to the greek-Roman period, the tower, along with the walls, whose remains are still visible, bordered what once was the medieval village. The Clock Tower was destroyed several times and always rebuilt to arrive in all its beauty to this day. In the upper section has a clock, placed on the occasion of the reconstruction of 1679, the battlements and is characterized by a stone arch. Inside the tower are also placed the bells that are made to play on two occasions: the appointment of the mayor and at the feast of the patron San Pancrazio, celebrated on July 9.
