Piazza della Cisterna, the medieval heart of San Gimignano

The square centres on the thirteenth-century cistern and is surrounded by the high facades of the medieval houses. It is triangular in shape and linked by an open passage to Piazza del Duomo, with which it forms the centre of the town. This ancient and magnificent scene is made even more imposing by the high towers, the symbols of San Gimignano.
