The tower was built at the beginning of the 15th century, during the Florentine domination. It was named as an opposite of the older Ghibelline Tower. It offers the views as far as the sea shore and is well worth the visit.

If you walk out here you can see the huge thick wall of the old city. It crosses the river just in front of the tower and turns left away from the city for a while.

This is the angle to actually gauge how much the tower is leaning. If you looked at it by itself or without a 90 degree angle object to compare it with, it's hard to see.

The remarkable political history of Tuscany before and during the Renaissance can't be understanding without understanding the Guelfs. The Torre, on the Piazza Tersanaia (not the more famous Torre pictured...More
