The Asinelli Tower was built in 1109 - 19 by the Asinelli family, but by the following century it had already passed under the control of the Commune.
It is 97.20 m-high with a drop of 2.23 metres and an inner staircase of 498 steps completed in 1684.
The plinth is surrounded by a small 'stronghold' built in 1488 to house the soldiers of the watch.
