Guelph Tower - Review

Everyone is familiar with La Torre di Pisa but how about the Torre Guelfa? Located towards the North of the Arno in an area most visitors don’t tread, stands the beautiful, brick red Guelph Tower. This tall tower is in the CittadellaVecchia, or the Old Citadel. If you can climb up the 200 steps of the tower, you will be rewarded with dazzling views of the city, right from the gleaming white Leaning Tower of Pisa, down till the vivid green pine trees of the Park of San Rossore, near the river banks.

In the 12th century, this part of Pisa was used mostly for ship building activities for its fleet, which were more often victorious than not. It would seem that Pisan were not just fine craftsmen with marble but with wood as well. During the 13th century, dockyard and other such structures were built in order to facilitate sailors but today, not much from this era remains. The only hints to its past glory are brick arches built into the defensive wall that stretches along the Arno. In 1394, the dock area was turned into a citadel, backed by a standing garrison. It was during the 15th century the Guelph Tower was born. Tragedy struck during the Second World War, when the tower was shattered as the Allied forces bombed Pisa from the air. The tower stood once again in1956, this time, open to the public.

Today, the tower also acts like a museum, with a stunning display of coats of arms that belonged to different Florentine military captains and commissioners. You can visit the tower along with other museums if you buy a combination ticket. Despite the citadel that now lies in rusted ruins, the tower is still standing strong, filled with beauty, inside and out. You’ll find that the tower is a beautiful addition to the skyline of Pisa. Even though this tower it not as prolific as the Leaning Tower, you’re sure to find peace of mind here, away from the throngs of tourist that regularly buzz around the Miracle Square. You can scale the Guelph and once you’re right at the top, you will have a visual smorgasbord to choose from- mountains, green grasses and trees as well as a number of Pisa’s man-made marvels. Climb up this red, rustic tower and watch the sea as it glitters beneath you, under the hot Italian sky.

Guelph Tower, Pisa Reviews

Google+
  • A good walk through the town and bridges. Try to have some time to see Pisa through the citizens' eyes.

  • Wieża, jak i ruiny w jej pobliżu, tworzą bardzo malowniczy klimat. Wejście do wieży nie jest jednak w żaden widoczny sposób oznakowane, my wypatrzyliśmy przez przypadek że coś jest tam w środku i okazało się że jest tam cała ekspozycja, a z góry (przez okno) rozchodzi się piękny widok na całe miasto, można dostrzec nawet słynną Krzywą Wieżę.

  • Sono passato molte volte da quelle parti ma non riesco mai a vedere un cartello che indichi come e quando poter salire sulla torre Guelfa. Noi viviamo anche di turismo. È normale agire così?

  • Torre storica che meriterebbe una maggiore cura...la vista da lassù è stupenda

  • Bella vista della città
