San Giminiano, a World Heritage Site

By DMO Affiliate
San Giminiano is in Tuscany, 56 km south of Florence. The patrician families who controlled the town built around 72 tower-houses (some as high as 150 feet) as symbols of their wealth and power. Although only 14 have survived, San Gimignano has retained its feudal atmosphere and appearance. The town also has several masterpieces of 14th- and 15th-century Italian art. Every year a medieval festival takes place through the town. The historic center of San Giminiano has been declared by Unesco a World Heritage Site
