Don't rush yourself. Take in the history of this place, get to the top, and enjoy the views for as long as you like. Dress appropriately for your Christmas card photo, because you will want to take it at the top of the tower!

One of the wonders of the region, the bell tower sparkles at night and a photo from there is unforgettable. Not to miss!
