  • When you don't have the right to build a tower from a certain height, to spread your power build two! Perhaps the symbol of San Giminiano.

  • Salvucci Tower Maggiore or twin towers are part of the architectural ensemble of the beautiful Tuscan town of San Gimignano. They are located in the Piazza del Duomo. Internal visit can be scheduled in advance, at least 3 days, on the site of the city.

  • Built by the city's most prominent Ghibelline family Salvucci, enemies of Ardinghelli, Guelph family, symbolizing family supremacy over the city. Since you could not exceed the height of the Tower scab, the oldest of San Gimignano, so named because who lingered had trouble, since the place was used as a prison, Salvucci and rivals Ardinghelli built twin towers, le torri dei Salvucci are visible in Piazza delle Erbe beside the Cathedral, the remains of those of Ardinghelli in Piazza della Cisterna. The towers are both with a square base and with very few openings, except for some window. On the ground floor have the tight hold down clamps, topped by architrave or arch.
