Photo: Palazzo Pubblico Torre Del Mangia Piazza Del Campo Siena Tuscany Italy

The Palazzo Pubblico (Town Hall) and the Torre del Mangia (tower) stand tall above the Piazza del Campo, the main public space in the city of Siena, the capital city of the province of Siena, Tuscany, Italy.

The Piazza Del Campo is a large, open, public space in the city of Siena. It is perhaps one of the finest examples in Europe of a Medieval Square, and is visited by thousands of people every year who enjoy the many sites, shops, restaurants and the historic layout of the piazza itself.

The front of the palace is curved slightly to offset the curve of the Piazza del Campo.

The Torre del Mangia - the tower connected to the Palazzo Pubblico, the town hall - was built between 1325 and 1348 and at that time, was the tallest religious tower in Medieval Italy. ... continue below the picture...
