place: Capizzi (ME)

info: The tower was built by a noble baron of Capizzi belonging to the Larcan family.
The baron wanted to build a long tower to see in the distance the church of St. James the Apostle Maggiore, about 2 kilometers away and behind the mountain “Verna”. The baron never succeeded in completing the great construction.
