Re: Found great apartment BUT near a church...

It's more likely to be every fifteen minutes!

The church near us marks the quarter hour, including through the night. By the time midnight rolls around we have four bells to show it's on the hour, plus the twelve bells.

But you definitely get used to it. I missed the bells when the clocktower was being repaired 😉

In the UK we can do better than that- at midnight it is 4 x 4 bells + 12 = 28 ah! and it then continues throughout the night, 4 bells every quarter, and cumulative, + the hour. Yeah.
