Torre San Niccolo - Florence


The Torre San Niccolo, at the foot of the Piazzale Michelangelo, is one of the last remaining parts of the medieval city walls. You may notice how simple the architecture is and how few apertures there are. This is indicative of the tower’s defensive role. Its counterpart, the Torre della Zecca or ‘Money Tower’, is further off on the other bank of the river and not visible from here.
