Bell Tower


Fuentes de Ayódar

The Fuentes de Ayódar bell tower has got a square layout and it measures about 3.5 m on the side.  It’s adjacent to the church on the east side.

It has a spiral staircase with 64 steps all the way to the set of bells.

The original stones from the bell tower walls as well as the church facade are hidden by a “polishing” that was done.  Four gargoyles stick out on the corners.

This bell tower has 4 openings to hang bells, but nobody remembers there ever being 4 bells on it. There are currently only 3.
