Palazzo Del Popolo Inner Courtyard
Tuscany

The Palace, expanded in 1323, has windows with segmental arches. The lower part of the building is composed of large square stones while the upper part is in brick. The first-floor central window has a balcony supported by old corbels, which once supported a gallery from which the Podestà spoke to the crowd. View the Virtual Tour of San Gimignano.

More About Tuscany

The Tuscany, one of the most beautiful Italian regions, is known throughout the world for its Landscapes and for the Works of Art that it houses (It is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance). Six localities have been designated World Heritage Sites: the Historical Center of Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and Pienza, the Square of the Cathedral of Pisa with the Leaning Tower and the Val d'Orcia. It is in the central Italy and borders with Emilia Romagna (north), Marche and Umbria (east) and Lazio (South). The West coast is bathed from the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian Sea; here we can find the islands of the Tuscan archipelago including the island of Elba. The regional capital is Florence and the other provinces are: Arezzo, Grosseto, Livorno, Lucca, Massa, Pisa, Pistoia, Prato and Siena.
