View from Torre Grossa to the Piazza della Cisterna, San Gimignano
The piazza was used as a market and a stage for festivals and tournaments. Its current layout dates from the thirteenth century.
The piazza is named after the underground cistern (Cisterna) built in 1287. The cistern is capped by a travertine octagonal pedestal, which was built in 1346 under the mayor Guccio Malavolti and is close to the center of the square.

Hello Sasa - We spent a couple of hours here on a way to San Quirico d'Orcia and never got to climb a tower! We did eat lunch at the restaurant in the lower right hand corner of your shot... very nice too! I do like this shot, it is full of detail and places I recognise. Good light and colour, nicely done.
