  • Gvelfskaja Tower is located near the bridge Ponte della Cittadella, on the right bank of the Arno River, next to the old Citadel of Pisa, which was built in the 13th century, outside the city walls to protect the approaches to the city from the sea. The once powerful structures remained only small fragments of brick walls. In the 15th century the fortress became known as the old Citadel, to distinguish it from New, built on the other side of the River (where is Garden Scotto). Guelph tower built in the early 15th century. During the Allied bombing 1944 year was devastated and rebuilt after the war. The tower can be reached, only found out about it too late, and the weather has not helped.

  • Nice neighborhood Republican arsenals, the charm of Pisa dominatrix of the seas, with the ancient shipyards. The area at the end of the fourteenth century was fortified, expanded work by the Florentines, who built the Guelph tower that stands out with its elegant silhouette on all buildings and is clearly visible from lungarno.

  • The surrounds are more interesting as the tower overlooks the river. However you are not allowed to climb the tower.  more »
