Roving Pic: Towers of San Gimignano

We could see the towers of San Gimignano as we approached from the hills to the east. The majestic, medieval structures grew taller with every passing mile until we entered the city walls and stood beneath them. Amidst the fifteen towers, we walked in wonder as the mid-afternoon sun caused them to cast shadows on the ancient, winding walkways below. Guarded by their winged inhabitants, the towers stood tall, unwavering, unyielding and unaware of time.
