Kısa bir aradan sonra yeniden Merhaba,sizlerden ayrı kaldığım bu sürede bir hafta sonu Edirne daha sonra 4 günlük Roma gezisi yaptım,oradan bir günü Sienaya ayırdım her üç şehri gezip tanımak çok büyük mutluluk verdi.Bu günden itibaren,Siena dan başlayıp,çektiğim tanıtım ağırlıklı karelerimi paylaşacağım.

The Torre del Mangia is a tower in Siena, in the Tuscany region of Italy. Built in 1325-1348, it is located in the Piazza del Campo, Siena's premier square, adiacent to the Palazzo Pubblico (Town Hall). When built it was one of the tallest non-sectarian towers in mediaeval Italy. At 102 m, it is now second only to Cremona's Torrazzo.
The name (meaning "Tower of the Eater") derives from its first guardian, Giovanni di Balduccio, nicknamed Mangiaguadagni for his tendency to spend all his money for food.
The upper part was realized by Agostino di Giovanni under design by one Mastro Lippo pittore, probably identifiable with Lippo Memmi.
The clock was added in 1360.The tower is visible from all parts of Siena and is adjacent to the Gothic Palazzo Pubblico.
The tower was built to be the exact same height as the Duomo di Siena as a sign that the church and the state had equal amounts of power.

The walls of the tower are approximatelty 11 ft. thick on each side. The stairwell up to the top of the tower is cramped and most visitors need to duck their heads most of the way up the tower. There is little room for two way traffic on the stairs.
