Le Due Torri – Torre degli Asinelli

Visit the Asinelli Tower, the taller of the two sisters: 97.2m high, leaning a noticeable 1.3° off-centre. It was built between 1109 and 1119 as a symbol of grandeur for the family by the same name. It passed into the hands of the municipality the following century. The tower was a lookout and defensive stronghold. Its military purpose is evidenced by the lower loggia also called rocchetta, or mini fortress, that was built around the square base in 1488 as headquarters for the tower’s sentinels.
