What to see in Giglio Castello
In this village, you will be able to enjoy its historical beauties. The main entrance, with three doors, decorated with the Medicean crest, witnesses the period when the island had to protect itself from the attacks of the pirates, who arrived from the sea. The path of the walkways starts from here, along the boundary walls, that is composed by loopholes and towers, until the Church of Saint Peter the Apostle (XV century). Inside there are the Saint Mamiliano’s relics and the “Ivory Christ”, considered the most important artwork of the island. Continue towards Square XVIII November (Piazza XVIII Novembre), where the Pisan Fortress (XII century) can be visited: you will be in highest point of the village.
