  • Built in the first half of the 13th century as a watchtower though it represented figuratively the superiority of the municipality. It is also known as the "clock tower" with the dial set on one of the walls covered with travertine, was subsequently connected thanks to the bridge adjacent to the Cassero Senese when in the 14th century Sienese surrendered to Massa Marittima after exhausting struggles. Finally from 1985 was Museum with the possibility to visit it by climbing up to the top where you can enjoy a splendid view of the surrounding countryside and the town.

  • The presence of stairs steep almost vertical "placed above the reception should be reported at the entrance because not everyone has the ability to be able to deal with, I say I was dizzy at the mere sight. This I report for one reason — I wish that the person who sold me the tickets had made the gesture of returning the ticket cost, gesture that I of course declined given the insignificance of cost, but would donate a little humanity to an acceptance that describe cold is an understatement. Who was with me and went up he did said that from up there was beautiful, small consolation.

  • The arc is impressive
  • The tower was built in 1228 with function of both control over territory (Watchtower), both to assert the authority of the municipality of Massa Marittima which had recently emancipated from the Dominion of the Bishop-Prince. The tower was originally higher than one third compared to the current one which is the result of reconstruction by Siena at the end of the war that took her winner on mass. To visit.

  • Charming and panoramic Tower, built by Massetani in 1228 has become an integral part of the Sienese Fortress in 1335 when they joined their building through an impressive arch.

  • If you suffer from Vertigo renounce, the stairs are steep and narrow but the view from up here is breathtaking, if the day is clear you can see Montecristo, Elba and Corsica.
