St. Anne’s Church Bell Tower in Cork, Ireland

The Italianate-style bell tower of St. Anne’s church has been a landmark of Cork’s Shandon neighborhood since it was built in 1722. Perched 164 feet above is a gilded fish weathervane. Just below are two clocks. Notice how they are several minutes apart? The other two on this tower probably display different times. This is why the tower is nicknamed, “The Four-face Liar.” You can climb the 132 steps for a great view of Cork and ring the the eight Shandon Bells in the belfry.
