Near Volterra is another fun city called San Gimignona. It is a very medieval town as evidenced by it’s walls and many towers. There used to be over 60 towers but today there are only 14 left. Back in the day before city walls people made towers to protect themselves. Then they built the city walls and people held on to their towers as feuds among different families within the city walls (i.e. Montagues and Capulets) were prominent.
