Torre del Candeliere (Tower of the Candlemaker)
Torre del Candeliere (Tower of the Candlemaker) Review
Built to both defend and control their new possession after the Sienese conquered Massa Marittima in 1335, the Fortezza dei Senesi crowns the upper part of town. Just inside the imposing Sienese gate is the so-called Tower of the Candle Holder, a massive bastion that is connected to the outer walls by the Arco Senese, a high arched bridge. A visit to the tower gives access to the arch and to the upper city walls, where commanding views open before you.
