One of the squares was dominated by the statute of Girolano Savonarola: a Renaissance era Dominican monk who was quite the town zealot. The unflattering statue makes him look like the Emperor from Star Wars; alas, the rigorous calls for puritanical “renewal” were not well received, and he left this world literally at the end of his rope.
Medieval architecture, filled with modern conveniences. Our arrival was actually too early for lunch, and too late for breakfast. Amit the cycling locals, we found a small pizzeria and ducked in for a quick bite.
Hydration, so important in this superheated space!!!
