Piazza Grande is the most beautiful square in Arezzo, in the heart of the medieval city: its characteristic trapezoidal shape, arose around 1200 and was later modified and reduced in size in the XVI century, with the creation of the Vasari loggia. Many buildings are noteworthy, such as the Palace of the Logge, built in 1573 by Giorgio Vasari and The Faggiolana Tower, of the XIII century. Piazza Grande is the spectacular setting of the Giostra del Saracino, a knightly tournament that usually takes place every year, between June and September.
