Isola Sacra - 6 Campanile

The campanile of the Basilica of Saint Hippolytus (5) was added in the twelfth century. Next to it is a small memorial chapel, supposedly on the spot of the well in which Hippolytus was drowned. For a long time the campanile was the only indication of the former presence of a church.
