Along the way you can enjoy the quiet and suitable for families with small children that reigns in Gubbio, and it is so beloved. In the Tower there are ancient stones, niches and passageways: bella

  • The tower was to guard and defense to one of the entrances of the city. Dates back to 1400 and had a triple and simple defense system: an iron grating, a drawbridge and a sturdy door. Its five floors were restored allowing you to discover loopholes and walkways where you can admire beautiful views of the city of Gubbio. During the restoration has also recovered, positioned on the lower arch, a fresco depicting the "Madonna with child". Today the tower houses an important collection of ceramics in "shine" of Italy ". Interesting Museum to understand what the "shine". This refined technique is a type of decoration that you get on an already glazed enamel and baked, and is to apply a thin layer of metal particles that following exposure to fire, determine fringe effects of various colors depending on the type of metal used. Which were dedicated to him some of your time.

  • I passed several times through the porta romana Gubbio. It is very characteristic, indeed there is portrayed the city symbol (a cloud). Gives access to the old town and the main course. Unfortunately I was unable to visit the tower above the door.
