San Gimignano is world famous for its white wine and Medieval architecture.

San Gimignano, founded in Medieval times, is a hill town in the heart of Tuscany, midway between Florence (north) and Siena (south - see map below).

It has a very characteristic, spectacular skyline, due to its walls and towers: 14 of its original 72 towers remain.

The economy of the independent city of San Gimignano was flourishing in the 11th century, which saw the start of the construction of its towers, that continued in the 12th and 13th centuries.

The towers of San Gimignano, dominating the valley, were built by rival noble families. They create one of the most distinctive and beautiful urban profiles in the world, looking from a distance like a castle in the sky.

The Duomo (cathedral) is also noteworthy.

The town is visible from a long distance, and it commands far-ranging views itself.

San Gimignano, although an important tourist centre, is a small town, with a population of about 7,000 people. It is just over 40 miles from the Tyrrhenian Sea, off the western coast of Italy.

San Gimignano has been declared by UNESCO, the United Nations cultural organization, part of the World's Architectural Heritage.
