Former residence of the San Gimignano Podestà.
Circa 1200 C.E.
Connected to the 13th century Palazzo Vecchio del Podestà, the Torre Rognosa rises 51 meters above San Gimignano.
Podestà was the title given to the appointed head of many Italian cities. The Palazzo Vecchio was the residence of the Podestà of San Gimignano for about 100 years, until, in 1337, he moved across the square into the Palazzo Comunale.
- The tower functions as a viewpoint.
