Church bells ring...often here.
These magnificent buildings on The hill were built closer to God but mostly so pilgrims from afar could find the village. These "hubs" of the village were the center focus, there was no separation of church and state. The music had purpose.
There are bells for worship or for market. There are bells for political gatherings and bells for farmers. There are bells for death and bells for birth... These bells are the original community "text messaging".
These bells, bell towers, churches were the "graham bell" of communication in mideveal times. They were the "Marconi station" between villages.
These bells sound often during the day here. They are mostly to tell us the hour. They are romantic. Their tune is different. Locals don't even hear them anymore ...but I do.
I will miss these bells..
