San Gimignano: Attractions and more...



The towers of San Gimignano can be seen from quite a distance; there are thirteen of these soaring structures jutting into the sky from various parts of the city. The Torre Grossa (the big tower) can be accessed for a panoramic view of the city. It is a part of the Civic Museum, which displays several frescoes and paintings.

The Collegiata, a church from the medieval ages, no longer serves as a church but is packed with numerous frescoes, paintings and statues. The Sant’Agostino, another medieval church, too has many frescoes and a carved marble tomb. The Palazzo del Podesta has been used as a venue for the town’s decision makers since its inception; today, it also displays several art masterpieces.

The San Gimignano Medieval Festival is a 3-day festival held in June. The town dons the look of a medieval village as acrobats, jugglers and jousting knights take to the streets.
