TORRE DEI LAMBERTI
In the historic center of the city, in what was once the ancient Roman forum, Piazza delle Erbe, stands the Torre dei Lamberti. Today, with its 84 meters of height and with the numerous architectural modifications that have appeared over the course of its 800-year history and more, it is the tallest building in Verona. Construction began in 1172 at the behest of the noble and mysterious Lamberti family, of whom there is no news. The Romanesque style was chosen, typical of the time, in bricks alternating with tuff, still visible in the lower part of the building.
