When I went to Torcello for the first time, with my girlfriend, I was very sceptical about it. When you arrive there with the ferry-boat, taken from Burano, you have the feeling that there is nothing there, but then you discover that it is … particular and beautiful 🙂
As I said, you arrive with the ferry boat and then you have to follow a pathway: on your right there is a canal and on your left there are fields with weeds.
While you are walking you think ‘but where am I? There is nothing here’ until you find on the right a strange bridge, called ‘Devil’s Bridge’ (Ponte del Diavolo) .
Nestled in the heart of St. Mark’s Square, the the bell tower “il Campanile”,
usually called “El Paron de casa”, i.e. the house owner, may go unnoticed. Once you know its history, this won’t happen.
Almost 100 meter tall, it is one of the highest bell towers in Italy. Its simplicity makes it so charming. The red bricks are interrupted by the whiteness of the bell chamber. At the top the gold statue of Archangel Gabriel.
The original building was a lighthouse of the IXth century, while the actual Campanile is the result of subsequent works.
