The three bells on the three columns are in fact a moving sculpture capable of rising into a tower. It is raised from a depth of 13 metres to a height of 13 metres by hydraulics. The bronze sculpture depicts St Bartholomew the Apostle, patron saint of the vineyards and the vineyards. Bartholomew died a martyr's death in 70 AD, brutally executed. He was skinned, crucified and beheaded. The statue's serpent therefore refers to Bartholomew's actions, the exorcism, the cross represents suffering, and the saint's body, also in bronze, is stripped of its skin. The chimes and the composition move and ring every day at 7.00, 12.00 and 19.00.
