"Priceless Historical and Architectural Treasures"

Even from afar the city's unusual silhouette is very striking. Of the original 72 towers erected by its most powerful families, 15 still remain - more than in any other city. Patrician families constructed these tower residences as a sign of their power and attempted to outdo each other with the height of their constructions. The medieval city core was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1990.
