  San Martino's distinctive tower
by iandsmith

Another thing you notice when you get there and are walking around the walls is the towers.
Some are attached to churches, in this case to the Duomo San Martino, easily recognizable by its different coloured top.
Another of note is La Torre Guinigi which features trees growing at the top of it; nine in all and they're actually in pots, not rooted to the brickwork.
One is climbable and has a grand view from the top of the surrounding countryside on non-polluted days.

Directions: north of Pisa

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
