Base of the Campanile

Usually most photos concentrate on the Campanile from afar or looking up at it’s top, so I decided to post one of the entrance. The Campanile was completed in 1922 on the landing beach where the British Settlers arrived in 1820. Once you enter this door, you still need to climb 204 steps to get to the top observation area for stunning views all around.

    I like the angle of the shot and the architecture plus the contrast of the rock and brick.

    And what a climb it is, but well worth it. I have been up 3 times. About once every 20 years since 1965

    What would be nice is to see some shots of the interior. Many people may not know this but the Campanile is more like a museum than a monument. There are rooms with exhibits on the Settlers, the Campanile itself and the operating mechanism. And its all free. A heartfelt donation to conserve is all charge!
