Today’s tower is a replica of the bell tower of St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice. On its spire stands a bronze statue of Saint Euphemia which revolves on its axis and shows the direction of the wind with her right hand. Be sure to visit the Baroque church in which the sarcophagus of the city’s patron is kept. More info here http://www.lonehotel.com
