Favorite thing: The village of San Grimignano is surrounded, even today, by the ancient walls which stretch for 2176 metres. Since 15th century the defence system was strengthened by building five cylindrical towers around the circle. The towers, which looks almost like a bastions, are very well preserved. This one is situated in a close vicinity to the Porta San Giovanni.
