A tower containing one or more bells, typically part of a church is a belltower; attached to a city hall or other civil building, it is usually named belfry; the occasional free standing one may be referred to by its Italian name, campanile.
Belltowers may also contain carillons, a musical instrument traditionally comprised of large bells which are sounded by cables, chains, or cords connected to a keyboard.
Belfries occur in England, in the western provinces of Flanders and nearby: in the north of France and in the Dutch town Sluis.
From 1505 to 1508 a new belltower was erected next to the church on the foundation of the old tower, which gave it its name.
A story is told of the BellTower that after Napoleon captured Moscow in 1812, he heard that the cross on the central dome of the Annunciation Cathedral had been cast in solid gold, and immediately gave orders that it should be taken down.
Ivan the Great BellTower adjoins the Assumption Belfry, which was built between 1523 and 1543 by the Italian immigrant architect Petrok Maly Fryazin (who converted to Orthodox Christianity and settled in Russia).
