This bell tower was built between the 11th and 13th century and makes a great center point for the square. The tower was great to view at night.

Its a beautiful small square with lots of history,but wake up Oristano not much information around over historic building,cathedrals etc,no printed information at all it seems. To make it up though nice bars perfect for a relaxed coffee/glass of wine,and boutique shops.
