Tower of San Nicolò di Bari at the Albergheria
Attached to the church is a slender quadrangular construction with well squared ashlars, it is the 14th-century civic tower that was part of the city’s defensive system. Built by the universitas of Palermo to defend the walls of the “Cassaro”, it was not part of the structures of the church but was free and isolated.
“Tower of excellence”, perhaps the tallest in Palermo, having lost the meaning of defense, wanted to soften it and lose its austere appearance, applying them to the second level of the mullioned windows enriched by an inlay frame. The tower, divided into four levels, was built with large ashlars, using squared tufaceous boulders, which give it a rigorous and severe line.
Surely, among the main elements that characterize the Tower, is the superb landscape that you can admire from its terrace, from right to left, the monuments of the historic center of Palermo: Dome of the Carmine Maggiore Church and Ballarò Market, Cupola Church of Jesus , dome of the Church of Santa Caterina D’Alessandria, dome of the Church of San Giuseppe dei Teatini, Castello Utvegio and Monte Pellegrino, dome of the Church of Sant’Ignazio, Teatro Massimo, dome of the Santissimo Salvatore church, dome of the Church of Santa Chiara, Liceo Benedetto Croce (ex Fatebenefratelli Hospital), Conte Federico Palace, Sclafani Palace, Cathedral, Porta Nuova, Royal Palace, Church of San Giuseppe Cafasso, Church of San Francesco Saverio.f
