  • The Torre is situated in a quaint piazza. The piazza offers great views of the surrounding mountains. The two eating establishments in the piazza were not so appealing visually.

  • The Torre della Bajona - also called Torre delle Ore or Torre Civica - is a tower located in Bormio, in Piazza Cavour - or Piazza del Kuerc. Imposing and very characteristic, it is the bell tower of the town. The first written records date back to the fourteenth century, although it is likely that it was built a century or two ago. The tower takes its name from the Bajona, the large bell that gathered citizens or tolled important anniversaries. The bell was recast, following various damage suffered, in the seventeenth century. The two bells obtained have remained until now and still ring from the top of the Tower. The façade of the tower is dominated by the clock, surrounded by a fresco - now present only in a small part - where the coats of arms of Bormio can be seen in the four corners, a white cross on a red background. With a perimeter at the base of about 32 meters, it has a dovetail battlements - a sign of Ghibelline belonging - which highlights the support of the emperor of the community.
  • Splendid tower in the center of the town overlooking Piazza Cavour, it is also known as the civic tower or tower of the hours.
