St. Bartholomew’s Bell Tower

Closing time
at 23:00

The 21st century tower of the mosque. The congregation had long wanted Catholic services to be accompanied by bells again, so in 2004 they got a bell tower.The bell is temporarily out of order.
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 is out of order.
