    Sather Tower is one of several buildings on the UC Berkeley Campus listed on the National Register of Historic Places that are well worth seeing. It is modeled after the Campanile in Venice and was built in 1914. It was designed by John Galen Howard. The bells chime every day at noon.

    Sather Tower

    by Tom_Fields Updated Jan 23, 2007

    Located on the University of California campus, this tower offers the best view of the East Bay area. It's modelled after the original Campanile Tower in Venice. John Galen Howard designed this tower, which was completed in 1914.

    The 64-bell carillon produces a lovely, melodic sound. It chimes every day at noon. This building, along with others on the University campus, is on the National Register of Historic Places.
