. . Siena. Italy

The Torre del Mangia tower in Siena, Tuscany, Italy (1338-1348), at the Piazza del Campo, Siena's premier square, and Palazzo Pubblico (Town Hall). One of the tallest secular towers in medieval Italy.

The tower was built to be exactly the same height as the Siena Cathedral as a sign that the church and the state had equal amounts of power.
