Torre Guinigi: The Tower with Oak Trees on Top

Torre Guinigi

Rising high above Lucca, Italy stands the Torre Guinigi -- the Guinigi Tower. It was built in the Fourteenth Century by a wealthy family as a demonstration of power. Oak trees planted in the garden on the top provide a shaded view of the city. Read all about it and view more photos at Kuriositas.

I've never been to Italy, but I'd enjoy visiting Sicily. I've read that it's filled with architectural and archaeological treasures by the many different cultures and empires which have ruled it.
