The borders of Piazza della Cisterna, a triangular piazza in San Gimignano, are lined with medieval towers and houses that echo that architectural style. At the convergence of the town's two main streets, the piazza is a gathering place for locals, a site for outdoor markets, and a stage for festivals. Many of the stone buildings feature ground-floor cafes well-suited to people-watching. One of these structures houses the cistern that gives the piazza its name.
