Weathered — Church Bells in the Tower

Weathered Bronze Bell; Nuestra Señora del Valle, Catamarca, Argentina

Nothing weathers quite like bronze, and bronze church bells are no exception. This bell, exposed to the elements since installed in the 19th century, is lovely in it’s rich patina. But, if you want to see it you must climb to the bell tower. Take the guide with you and don’t fall.

These photos were taken on a textile tour to Argentina’s Catamarca province. The bells are in the Catedral Basilica del Santisimo Sacramento de Nuestra Señora del Valle in San Fernando del Valle in Catamarca, capital of the province of Catamarca, Argentina. It dates from 1869.

Cheers, Carto

Lots of weathering is being shown on the WordPress Daily Post, here.
