This is a model of the city around 1300. It is interesting to compare with the todays buildings. It doesn't take too much time to visit it.

San Gimignano 1300 museum is located close to the Duomo piazza and bell tower. It is a small one room affair which has been a labour of love where artisans had recreated a 3D model of the town. It was quite an impressive work and...More
