Clock Tower in Çanakkale

The Clock Tower was built in 1897 as provided for in the will of Vitalis, who was a tradesman and also the Italian Consul in Çanakkale. Vitalis who died in Nice, France, wanted a water system and a clock tower to be built in Çanakkale with his wealth amounting to 10,000 French gold pieces. The Çanakkale Municipality constructed the Clock Tower and water system with this money.
