Pistoia seen by a privilegiated view!

Piazza del Duomo square Seen from My Bank , Monte dei Paschi di Siena, the oldest Bank in The world ~ founded in 1472 ~ looks like a painting , an old postcard .
Since The middle age This square was a meeting point for merchants and it was the perfect location For an Open air market as it still nowadays every Wed & Saturdays morning.
It has always been The heart of The city with temporal & spiritual power united in The same square : still today we have The City hall , The Bishop palace, The court, The Cathedral, The Baptistery , The chamber of work and… The Bank !
Except Two of these buildings all The other are still in use so you can get married in The Cathedral, ask for a loan by The Bank, get divorced by The Court, then if you are a bit mad , get married again by The city hall…
I had The chance to Look out Of The balcony and these are My shots , hope you Will enjoy them!
