The palace is a must see in San Gimignano. Of particular note the tower, called Torre Grossa because it is the highest and biggest tower in San Gimignano. From the top, you have a wonderful view of San Gimignano as well as the surrounding hills.

Torre grossa is the tallest tower in San Gimignano. One can observe the town and the beautiful Toscana country site. Palazzo del Popolo is a small museum with a few large rooms previously used by the local government. The visit to the tower is a must as the view from the top is amazing.

When you are in the main plaza of San Giminiano, facing the Duomo , on your left side you can find the Palazzo del Popolo or People's Palace.
On the external wall facing the cathedral, you will see many examples of a very ancient tradition: the noble families of the town used to have their "arms" sculpted on the wall in representation of their social status.

Huffing and puffing after the mountain-goat offspring, the views at the top were well-worth it, even if the little dears were already sick of it by the time I arrived.
