Piazza Grande

Interesting
This square is surrounded by medieval houses with crenelated towers, the Romanesque apse of Santa Maria della Pieve church, Gothic and Renaissance palaces (like the palace of the lay brotherhood or palace of the Loggia, by Vasari). Here, many stooges dressed in medieval attire take part in annual "Giostra del Saracino". A journey in time.
