Piazza Il Campo

By bliba  
Siena is widely considered the most beautiful city in Italy and lies in the heart of Tuscany. World famous is the central square Piazza Il Campo

Piazza del Campo is the principal public space of the historic center of Siena, Tuscany, Italy and is regarded as one of Europe's greatest medieval squares. It is renowned worldwide for its beauty and architectural integrity. The Palazzo Pubblico and its Torre del Mangia, as well as various palazzi signorili surround the shell-shaped piazza. At the northwest edge is the Fonte Gaia.

The twice-a-year horse-race, Palio di Siena, is held around the edges of the piazza. The piazza is also the finish of the annual road cycling race Strade Bianche.

When the world is held together by interlocking bricks. Stretching for as far as one can see.
