Town Clock (Kotor-Montenegro)
Opposite of the main town entrance, the Sea Gate at the Square of the Arms, there is the town clock. It is located on a tall tower erected in the Renaissance and built of massive stone. It was constructed in 1602 during the period of Antonio Grimaldi, whose initials were carved on the coat of arms above the entrance door. It is believed that a pillar of shame stood at that place in the Middle Ages and there is still a reminder of that – a stone pyramid in front of the tower itself. On the second floor of the tower there are two round dials, and on the west facade multiple inscriptions with praise to individuals who were eventually erased were ingraved. In the many earthquakes that hit Montenegro during the years, the tower has lean and the further leaning process is attempting to stop by supporting the foundations.
