Civic tower incorporated in Nizza Monferrato municipal building.

It is called "el Campanòn" (Il Campanone -The Great Bell) by the inhabitants of Nizza Monferrato.

Over the centuries it has undergone various restoration and transformation works according to the tastes of the period.

On the walls of the monument are still visible signs of the siege that suffered Nizza Monferrato, in 1613, by the Savoiardi.

Of particular interest is the bronze bell placed inside the tower that still tolls at all hours.
