Bell Tower of Granada Cathedral in Granada, Spain

The initial plans for the Granada Cathedral specified two, 265 foot bell towers. These would have been incredible accents to the fourth largest cathedral in the world. Unfortunately, only one belfry was finished at the north end. Although handsome in appearance, it is considerable smaller than the pair intended by the first architect, Enrique Egas. Each of the three tiers has a different type of capital on the columns or pilasters: Doric, Ionic and Corinthian.
