SAN GIMIGNANO photo album.

San Gimignano dates back to 929 and it is a walled hilltop town. The towers and the spires can be seen from a long distance in all directions. Monasteries and hospices developed over the years for pilgrims and other travellers.


The main sights are :

Duomo di Santa Maria Assunta

The Romanesque Chiesa di San Augustino

The Piazza del Duomo with its seven towers

Various palazzo and piazza dating from the 13 - 14th centuries

and the 13th century Porte San Giovani where the VF route took us from the town.
