San Gimignano It served as an important relay point for pilgrims travelling to or from Rome on the Via Francigena. The patrician families who controlled the town built around 72 tower-houses (some as high as 50 m) as symbols of their wealth and power. Although now you can see only 14 have survived from various battles , San Gimignano has retained its feudal atmosphere and appearance.
