This small pretty Romanesque church sits on the main square. The tourist office is next door.
This charming square is the only square in the town. Most of the town's shops and restaurants surround the square as well as the town's only church.
Porta Romea is the main gateway (well there's only one other!) in the encircling wall. The gate is the first thing you'll come too when you walk up from the main car park.
The walls completely encircle the town and have 14 heavily fortified towers which were built to keep out invasion from Florentine armies. It looks like you can walk along some parts of the walls as some wooden walkways are positioned along the top but when I was there it didn't look like this was possible.
