|Torre del Diavolo|
The Devil's tower.
The Torre del Diavolo (English: Devil's Tower) was a tower located in the town of San Gimignano.
Likely built for medieval defence, the Torre del Diavolo once had a walkway at its summit. The wooden spikes around the top held the boards of the walkway in place.
Depending on who you ask, the name (the Devil's Tower) comes from either the fact that lightning once struck the tower, or that the original owner left on a trip, only to come back and find it slightly higher than when he left.
