Consolata Church And Its Tower

The Santuario della Consolata at piazza Della Consolata.

 The Consolata standing side by side with its bell tower....

The bell tower was built in the eleventh century, the completion of the church of Sant'Andrea, the bell tower is the work of monaco Bruningo, and only evidence of the previous Romanesque church which was built on the current sanctuary is in fact due to this fact, it  appears to be disconnected from the design of  the main body of the baroque basilica.
