Adelasia Tower in Aidone


 Piazza Filippo Cordova - Aidone (EN)

The Torre Adelasia di Aidone today constitutes the bell tower of the annexed Church of Santa Maria La Cava, but originally it was one of the defense towers along the walls that lined the western slopes of the Norman village.
From the original Norman tower, it retains the lower floor from the high ogival portal and, inside, the cross vault, the limestone side portal and the majestic apse. < br> Over the centuries it has undergone many alterations and superimpositions in different styles: the Gothic-Catalan of the sixteenth-century second floor and the upper floor of the eighteenth century.
