Map
About the neighbourhood
San Gimignano rises on a hill (334m high) dominating the Elsa Valley with its towers. The town advanced in wealth and developed greatly during the Middle Ages thanks to the 'Via Francigena' the trading and pilgrim's route that crossed it.

Such success lead to the flourishing of works of art to embellish and décor the churches and monasteries. The construction of the towers dates back to the 11th and 13th centuries.
