CLIMB THE BELL TOWER TO HEAR THE 'SOUND OF THE MIRACLE' IN PERSON
The tolling of the historic bells in the bell tower of the ancient parish church dedicated to San Nicolò, now affectionately called the 'old church', have rang for centuries on holidays. One of these bells has a symbolic meaning for the people of Pietra: the 'Miracle Bell', on which the imprint of a hand is clearly visible, is the largest bell. Legend has it that it is the hand of San Nicolò, the patron saint of the town. The guided tour will let you discover this ancient sacred building that is so important to the city. The church was built in the year 885, then rebuilt and enlarged in 1384 in a Romanesque style, and was then abandoned in 1791 due to the opening of the new parish church, the current basilica of San Nicolò. In 1796, it was given to the Brotherhood of Flagellants by Pietra’s parliament[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
