The bell tower
Historical classified monument
As the church, also the bell tower has endured many remakes during the centuries. The architecture of the bottom part, the oldest one, is in romanic style and was made, as the historians say, in the XI century.
More recently, probably before XVII century- the period when the old clock (end XVI-beginning XVII century) was installed- the bell tower was restored and the roof, very slender, remade. Once a cock was on the iron cross of the roof, symbol of belonging of Aosta Valley clergy to the gallic church. We know, thanks to Robert Berton, that this cock “attached to an iron pole, hit and taken off its hinges by a lightning was destroyed by the wind that blew in a storm.”
In 2006, a copy of the cock has been repositionned on the cross during the restoration works that have regarded the entire religious complex.
