This route starts from the centre of San Vincenzo and leads up to the large statue of the Sailor, a 7-metre high bronze sculpture that has been overlooking the sea since 2010 from the tourist port of San Vincenzo. It's the only sculptural example of this magnitude located at a port in Europe, and it's a charming place both to admire the horizon and to rediscover your inner self.
From the centre of San Vincenzo, take Via Giuseppe Garibaldi, turning right towards Via Della Torre where the Torre di San Vincenzo coastal building is located near the tourist port. The tower was built by Pisans during medieval times, in the thirteenth century, so that it could perform sighting and defense functions along the southern coast of the territory of the Republic of Pisa.
