San Gimignano, Italy


San Gimignano the “City of Silva” lies in west-central Tuscany in central Italy.

 It lies about 20 miles (32 km) northwest of Siena. San Gimignano is rich in Gothic architecture and is one of the best-preserved Italian medieval towns, with city walls, gates, and 14 of its 72 old towers remaining still intact.

Most of the other towers fell because of insecure foundations.
