Torre Guinigi, Lucca

Torre Guinigi, Lucca (must see)

The Torre Guinigi is the most important tower of Lucca, located on Via Sant'Andrea. This tower, one of the few remaining in the city, is considered one of the most representative monuments. Its main feature is the oaks on its summit. The Guinigi family wanted to compensate for their unkindness by planting trees, which became a symbol of rebirth. By the will of the last descendant of the family, the tower shaft and palace became the property of Lucca.
